About Me

I am an Education Research Analyst at RTI International. Previously, I served as a statistician at the U.S. Department of Education, where I was part of the Analytics & Evaluation team within the Office of the Chief Data Officer.

I earned my Ph.D. in education policy from Vanderbilt University, where I was a National Academy of Education/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.
