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, and the Cornell Center for Social Sciences. I work on topics in political sociology, social networks, social mobility, and quantitative and computational methods.
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.
