I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology and a pre-doctoral trainee in the Center for Demography and Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
My research focuses on crime, deviance, and social control, using quantitative methods.
I am interested in the ways in which criminal justice systems both reflect and exacerbate inequalities within populations, as well as how criminal justice institutions – especially police agencies – can work with the communities they serve to improve public safety, while protecting civil rights.
Other research interests include immigration enforcement, race/ethnicity, and gender.
My research is supported by the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy.
