I am a Ph.D. candidate in sociology specializing in the study of social inequality in the US. My dissertation research looks at how college majors influence gender segregation in occupations. I am designing a survey experiment to study the effects of college major in occupational assignment.

Apart from this my second and third year research culminated in papers that study income inequality within occupations and studying the forms of racism in America using popular nationally representative datasets. My dissertation advisor is Prof. David Grusky.
