I am a PhD student in sociology at the University of Chicago. My research focuses on population-level trends in transgender and gender nonconforming health, as well as on survey and experimental design. I am currently working on my dissertation, and have worked as a Research Assistant at the Computation Institute’s Knowledge Lab.
