I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. 

My scholarship broadly examines how institutions and places structure patterns of inequality in American society. My current projects span three main strands of research: (1) the determinants of expanded immigration enforcement in the U.S. interior; (2) the collateral consequences of the U.S. immigration enforcement system; and (3) refugee integration in the United States. 

You can find some of my published work in the American Journal of Sociology, Demography, Journal of Health and Social Behavior, American Behavioral Scientist, and Socius. My research has received multiple awards from the American Sociological Association and Population Association of America and has been supported by the American Bar Foundation, the National Science Foundation, and the Russell Sage Foundation.

I received my B.A. from Brandeis University and my M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from Harvard University.
