I am postdoctoral fellow at the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research at Cornell University. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Washington in 2017. I study how institutions produce and reinforce inequality, with a focus on children and families. My current research uses large administrative datasets to examine how elements of the welfare state and organizations tasked with formal social control interact to regulate family life. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in American Sociological Review, The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences, Annual Review of Criminology, and other outlets.
