About Me

I am a Statistician at the U.S. Department of Education, where I work on the Analytics & Evaluation team within the Office of the Chief Data Officer. All views expressed on this website are mine alone and do not represent the official position of the U.S. Department of Education.

I completed my Ph.D. in education policy at Vanderbilt University, where I was a 2020 NAEd/Spencer Dissertation Fellow. My research has focused on the ways that higher education policies can influence the trajectories of individuals and institutions, with a particular emphasis on students who have been historically underserved. My work has appeared in outlets such as the American Educational Research Journal, Education Finance and Policy, the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, and Research in Higher Education.

Prior to entering the doctoral program, I spent eight years with RTI International, where I served as a research analyst for a number of higher education studies conducted on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education and the National Science Foundation. I earned an A.B. in Public Policy and American Institutions from Brown University.
