Starting in July 2018, I will be an assistant professor in the School of Criminology & Criminal Justice at Northeastern University.  My research interests include criminal record stigma, desistance from crime, and credentialing decisions for people with criminal records.

I was a 2016-2017 National Institute of Justice Graduate Research Fellow.  I received my Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from the University at Albany and a MA 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.
