The primary focus of my research is in education technology, data visualization and econometric modelling. My past projects have spanned many areas within education including college enrollment and access, teacher retention, the common core, and teacher evaluation.

I graduated from Bard College at Simon's Rock in May 2012. Simon's Rock is the only college in the country exclusively for younger scholars, meaning that nearly all students attend Simon's Rock after their Sophomore or Junior year of high school. Looking to escape the academic and social malaise of my high school, I fled to the beautiful mountains of the Berkshires. At Simon's Rock I studied mathematical economics and political studies and spent my Junior year at Lincoln College, Oxford University in the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics program.
In April 2017 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disorder. Three million Americans have type I diabetes. 15,000 adults and 15,000 children are diagnosed every year. In January 2018 I ran the Disney marathon and raised over $2000 for the Juveneile Diabetes Research Foundation and celebrated learning to live my life with this disease. I continue to fundraise for JDRF and other diabetes-related organizations.
I volunteered as a dance instructor and fundraiser for Forrest Grace, an incredible organization based in the Boston area. Forrest Grace provides low-cost dance instruction and free recital costumes to children in the program. To learn more about Forest Grace or to donate, visit their website.
