I’m a doctoral candidate in sociology at UNC-Chapel Hill, and a biosocial trainee at the Carolina Population Center. I research inequities in stress, health, and aging. I also study how people apply religion and spirituality to cope with social stressors. My research is funded by the National Institutes of Health and published in leading social science journals.


When I'm not working, I'm cooking and writing music with my partner, Allison, and taking walks with our rescue mutt, Stewart. I also like to read philosophy and poetry.
