I’m a PhD candidate at the Department of Sociology at Columbia University.
My work focuses on inequality and stratification, with a special interest in school segregation and the connection between educational systems and labor markets. I work on segregation measures, and I am the author of a couple of R packages. I am interested in computational methods and reproducible research.
