In my research, I investigate inequality in access to and completion of higher education in the United States. I am interested in the access that high school students and their parents have to information and resources regarding college attendance and costs during the college planning process. I am additionally interested in the importance of neighborhood and school effects on students' educational outcomes. I primarily use quantitative research methods, including survey data analysis, multilevel modeling, and causal inference techniques.
