Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Cornell University, where I am an affiliate of the Center for the Study of Inequality, the Cornell Population Center, the Cornell Center for Social Sciences, and the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research. I work on topics in political sociology, social networks, social mobility, and quantitative and computational methods.
My work has appeared in Amercian Journal of Sociology, Journal of Politics, Social Forces, and Sociological Science. My current projects examine political polarization in the US, with a focus on both political beliefs and ideology-based network segregation, using data from surveys and online forums. In a separate line of research, I use network approaches to study the structure of worker flows in labor markets. I have received my PhD in 2020 from New York University.
