I am a Ph.D. candidate in Education Policy & Program Evaluation at Harvard University. I am a quantitative social scientist studying how people make educational decisions and the consequences of these decisions on economic and social inequality. My current research examines: (i) how policymakers make evidence-based decisions in education and (ii) how low-income households invest in their children’s education. My research leverages large-scale administrative records and surveys collected in partnership with government and non-profit organizations. Through these collaborations, my work aims to improve the use of research evidence in education.

I am a NAEd/Spencer Dissertation Fellow and a Ph.D. Scholar in the Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality & Social Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School.

I am on the job market. My CV is available here.
