Urban sociologist, social demographer, and data science postdoc at UW Sociology and the eScience Institute
researching how neighborhood change affects migration, housing, and racial/sex disparities.

I am a PhD Postdoc at the University of Washington’s eScience Institute and the department of Sociology researching the intersection of residential segregation, neighborhood change, migration, and housing inequality. I use data science to examine evictions, micro-segregation trends, and the effects of gentrification on low-income households.

In addition to my academic research agenda, I am committed to designing and conducting policy-relevant research and developing academic relationships with local government, stakeholders, and advocates to help answer difficult sociological and demographic questions.
