If you are a prospective student, welcome! I am not recruiting students at Cornell because I will be moving on July 1. To work with me, you should apply to the UCLA Department of Sociology. The deadline for 2024 admission has passed, and this page is most relevant for 2025 admission. If you are a UCLA student, feel free to email me about getting involved. I am a faculty member of the Social Inequality Data Science Lab, and that website will give you a sense of some projects in our group.
I would like to particularly encourage potential collaborators who are first-generation students, women, LGBTQ persons, and those identifying with groups historically excluded from or underrepresented in graduate education, including persons of color. My research group strives to be an inclusive and affirming environment for all.
We will work at the intersection of social science and data science, with a substantive focus on inequality. We will also engage with methodological questions in causal inference. This page is designed to help you decide if my research group could be the right place for you. There are a few questions you may be asking.
