I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Providence College. My research interests include gender, inequality, family, quantitative methods, and computational social science. I use quantitative methods to understand how increases in women's educational attainment are connected to changing patterns in assortative mating, family structures, and gender roles.
Prior to returning to graduate study, I managed the processing and analysis of data used in large-scale social policy demonstrations and randomized-control trials at MDRC. My project work included multi-generational projects designed to improve the economic and educational opportunities of low-income populations in the United States. I began my career working in direct social services. I managed non-clinical therapeutic programming for formerly unhoused and neurodiverse adults in a 650-unit supportive housing community owned and operated by Common Ground Community (now Breaking Ground) in New York City. In West Africa, I worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Togo and Chad.
