about me

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Baker Institute Center for Health and Biosciences and the Department of Sociology at Rice University. I earned a PhD in Criminology, Law & Society at the University of California – Irvine and was a member of the Irvine Laboratory for the Study of Space and Crime (ILSSC). I earned a BA and an MA in Sociology from Bowling Green State University.

I am broadly interested in the production and consequences of spatial inequality in the domains of crime and criminal justice, housing and land use, and neighborhood change. My work is theoretically-driven and uses quantitative methods, with a particular interest in spatial methodologies.

My published work can be found in journals such as Social Science Research, Environment and Planning A: Economy and Space, Journal of Quantitative Criminology, the Annual Review of Criminology, British Journal of Criminology, The Professional Geographer, and Socius.
