Bio

I am a sociologist of education and health, and I broadly study how organizations reproduce social inequality and how they regenerate social equality. My current projects include community-based research and mentoring through the Santa Barbara County Latinx and Indigenous Migrant COVID-19 Response Task Force; an in-depth interview study of the well-being of migrant essential workers in California; and an ethnographic book project examining the achievement gap in Southern California. My graduate work is funded by the UCSB Center for Publicly Engaged Scholarship, the Family Service Agency of Santa Barbara County, the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow Program, the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award, the UCSB Regents Fellowship, the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, and the California State University Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program. Before embarking on a PhD, I worked for two years as a youth mentor in K-12 schools on the West Coast of the United States.
