About

I am a Ph.D. candidate and Paul F. Lazarsfeld Fellow in the Department of Sociology at Columbia University. I am also a graduate research fellow at the Columbia Labor Lab and the Columbia Center for Political Economy and part of the Worker Empowerment Research Network based between the Cornell ILR School’s Office for Labor Education Research and MIT Sloan. My research interests are work, political economy, unemployment, precarious and gig work, and labor organizing.

Before joining Columbia, I worked as a strategic researcher in the labor movement. I am now a member of the Student Workers of Columbia (UAW 2710). I graduated with a B.S. with honors from the Cornell School of Industrial and Labor Relations in 2018. In my free time, I enjoy reading fiction, cooking with friends, and making art.
