I am a computational and quantitative sociologist studying politics, organizations, and inequality. Currently I am a Sociology PhD candidate at the University of Arizona. I am scheduled to defend my dissertation on June 5, 2020. My ongoing project uses statistical, network, and computational methods with large-scale datasets to study the antecedents and consequences of shareholder activism sponsored by public pensions and labor unions that seeks to improve corporate political transparency and accountability in the United States after 2000. My work has been published in Journal of Marriage and Family, Demography, Poetics, International Journal of Comparative Sociology, and American Journal of Sociology.
