    I am broadly interested in the American social safety net, inequality, and social mobility.  My research in graduate school has used both statistical methods and in-depth qualitative interviews to examine the experiences of job loss and program access in the recessionary context.  I have published in Monthly Labor Review and the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management.
