In my research, I investigate the structural and cultural barriers to accessing higher education across socioeconomic backgrounds in the United States. I am particularly interested in access to information resources for parents and students during the college planning process. In addition to studying educational inequality, I study crime in urban areas, focusing on factors influencing disparities in who is likely to be a victim of gun violence as well as who is likely to be convicted for gun crimes. I primarily use quantitative methods, such as survey data analysis and causal inference techniques, but also have experience collecting and analyzing interview data.
