Office Hours for Summer Session 1 2017 :

  • Wednesday 4-5

I look forward to joining Rice University's Academy of Fellows as a postdoctoral scholar in September 2017.

My dissertation research analyzes the Add Health to evaluate the consequences of negative early-life experiences, such as parental incarceration and exclusionary school discipline, for criminal behavior and economic well-being in adulthood.

Other projects examine relationships between: 1) income instability and health among front-line service workers; 2) heterogeneity in the returns to education among low-wage workers with a criminal record; 3) attachment to property, home ownership, and support for criminal justice reform; 4) over-time change in adolescent gender ideology and the "gender gap" in delinquency.
