I am currently a Research Associate at MDRC. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher with the Saul Zaentz Early Education Initiative at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE). I also served as faculty co-chair of HGSE's new Master's Early Childhood Concentration

My research interests stand at the intersection of quantitative policy analysis and the study of human development. I am passionate about using advanced quantitative methods to address complex questions related to human behavior and development. Prior to beginning graduate school, I taught in a Head Start program in Houston, Texas and then served as an instructional coach for early career teachers in preschool through fifth grade classrooms throughout the city. I hold a B.A. in Economics and International Relations from Tufts University, a Master's degree in Human Development and Psychology from Harvard, and Ph.D. in Education Policy and Program Evaluation from Harvard.
