I am interested in the causes and consequences of gendered violence, and how orientations to masculinity inform acts of violence. In my MA thesis, I examine racial differences in mass shooter outcomes. I am also currently working on a project that conceptualizes entitlement to romantic relationships among young adults, exploring how entitlement may be expressed and how these attitudes intersect with other social identities and perspectives.
I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Dickinson College in 2016 where I received honors for my undergraduate thesis exploring the relationships between masculinity, misogyny, and mass school shootings. After graduating, I returned to my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA, where I worked in two capacities: non-profit volunteer recruitment and family planning clinical research. This work led to a co-authored publication in Contraception (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0010782422002451) comparing appointment availability and services offered by abortion facilities versus crisis pregnancy centers.
