I am an Assistant Professor of Education Policy and Inequality in the Department of Leadership, Policy, and Organizations at Vanderbilt University's Peabody College.
I study how public education in the U.S. can help combat racial and socioeconomic inequality. In my research, I draw on the economics of education, psychology, and sociology literatures and use rigorous quantitative methodology to identify the causal impacts of different policies, programs, and interventions in schools on students' outcomes. My current projects focus on school integration, school choice, racial bias in education, and how schools support the development of antiracist youth.
I received my Ph.D. in Education with a concentration in Education Policy and Program Evaluation from Harvard University in 2022.
