I am a computational and quantitative sociologist studying politics, organizations, networks, and inequality. Currently I am a Sociology PhD candidate at the University of Arizona. My ongoing project combines statistical, network, and computational methods with large-scale datasets to study shareholder activism and corporate political behavior. My work has been published in Journal of Marriage and Family, Demography, Poetics, International Journal of Comparative Sociology, American Journal of Sociology, and PLoS One.

To combat the COVID-19 pandemic, I am currently working on a project mapping and predicting social distancing behavior combining SafeGraph and Facebook data with a deep learning approach.
