I’m a doctoral candidate in sociology at UNC-Chapel Hill, and a biosocial trainee at the Carolina Population Center. My research is funded by the National Institutes of Health and has been published in Demography, Social Forces, Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Society and Mental Health, Race and Justice, Population Research and Policy Review, and Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, among other outlets. You can find more information about my work in the links above.


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