Josh is a fourth-year doctoral candidate in Stanford's Sociology Department and the Center for Education Policy Analysis (CEPA) at Stanford University. He has fellowships from Diversifying Academia Recruiting Excellence (DARE), Gerald J. Lieberman, Institute of Education Sciences (IES), and Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education (EDGE) as well as a BA in Political Science from the University of Chicago and an MA in Education from Stanford University.

Josh's research tackles questions of racial and economic inequality with a focus on issues related to segregation, racial ideology, and methodological innovation. His current projects make novel use of large datasets to gain insights into racial segregation within schools, residential income segregation, rates of police killing civilians, and changes in racial self-categorization.
