I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society (CRRES) and the Department of Sociology at Indiana University. I received a Ph.D. in Sociology from Princeton University and a B.A. in Sociology and Psychology from Northwestern University. 

My research focuses on race/ethnicity, urban sociology, political sociology, and organizations. I am currently writing an ethnography of a multiethnic neighborhood in Chicago, which speaks to ongoing debates about the consequences of ethnic/racial diversity for social relations and civic participation. In other research, I use quantitative methods to examine perceptions of race and skin color, intergroup attitudes, and social capital among urban families. 

My work has been supported by the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.
