I am a Sociology PhD candidate at Cornell University.  My research is motivated by a desire to understand the causes and consequences of socioeconomic and financial inequality, particularly in the American context. I draw on economic sociology, sociology of finance, and social stratification literatures to examine a range of topics, including financial security among young adults and consumer access to financial services.

I received a BA in Economics and French from Bryn Mawr College and an MA in Sociology from Cornell University. Prior to graduate school, I worked as the Associate Director of the Group of Thirty, a think tank focused on issues in international economics and finance.
