newphotoI am an assistant professor in the College of Criminology & Criminal Justice at Florida State University.

I was a 2016-2017 National Institute of Justice Graduate Research Fellow.  I received my PhD from the University at Albany and a Master’s degree in Sociology from the University of Delaware.  Before returning to graduate school, I was a research associate at the Urban Institute for three years, where I was involved in data collection, project management, and qualitative and quantitative data analysis.
