Welcome! I have recently received my Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Sociology at Stanford University.

My current research agenda involves three projects. As a postdoctoral scholar, I am working with David Pedulla (Stanford) and Devah Pager (Harvard) on a large-scale field experiment and survey of employers to examine the organizational determinants of hiring discrimination. I am involved in the design, implementation, and analysis of data. My second project, which is based on my dissertation research, uses a field experiment methodology to examine how skin color, class status, and gender intersect in the labor market. One article from this line of work has recently won the Distinguished Graduate Student Award from the ASA’s Section on Race, Gender, and Class (2017). In my third major research project I seek to examine the effects of racial spatial isolation on minority victimization. In my previous research, I examined the articulation of racial ideologies in comparative-historical perspective. Articles from my current and previous research are either under review or have been published in peer-review journals.

My research has received funding from the National Science Foundation, the UC President’s Dissertation-Year Fellowship, Eugene Cota-Robles Fellowship, and various research grants from UC Berkeley’s Graduate Division.
