I am a Climenko Fellow, Ph.D. candidate in Sociology and Social Policy, and doctoral fellow in the Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality and Social Policy at Harvard.

My core interests include criminal law and criminal justice policy, property law and housing policy, family structure and family law, poverty law, urban and community sociology, culture, and qualitative methods. Though these interests are multiple, they coalesce around the goals of understanding persistent poverty, illuminating sources of resilience, and identifying potential legal and policy interventions to help resolve the issues identified.

I am a first-generation college graduate with degrees from Furman University, University College Dublin, Harvard University, and the Yale Law School. I am on the Board of Directors of the Truman Scholars Association and a resident tutor at Lowell House. I am also a member of the California Bar. A link to my CV is here.
