I am a Ph.D. Candidate, a Ford Foundation Dissertation (2016) and Predoctoral (2014) Fellow, and a Center for the Study of Democracy Peltason Fellow in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Irvine.

My work addresses structural influences on political outcomes. My research interests include social movements, political sociology, politics and voting, drugs, crime, inequality, and segregation. In my work, I mainly use quantitative and computational methods.

As the former project manager for the Social Science Research Center at California State University Fullerton, I currently consult for companies and research centers, programming and conducting statistical analyses.
