My research investigates the causes and consequences of social inequality, with a focus on education, neighborhoods, housing, and social policy. I primarily use quantitative methods to analyze large administrative or survey datasets. I aim to contribute to both scholarship and policy, and I engage with education and housing policymakers and practitioners through research dissemination, research partnerships, and advisory positions.
My current research agenda comprises two related lines of inquiry. First, I investigate the causes and consequences of segregation, with a focus on implications for educational inequality. Second, I examine how low-income assisted housing policies hinder or promote access to neighborhoods that provide opportunities for children.
