PhD Candidate in Sociology,

I am an organizational researcher who studies topics related to gender, career transitions, and labor market inequality. Across three projects, my dissertation uses mixed-methods, online experiments, and digital interventions in real-world settings to examine 1) how perceptions of gender influence organizational hiring and talent assessment practices and 2) how organizational practices can be designed to reduce gender inequality and improve women’s organizational advancement.

Prior to pursuing my Ph.D., I worked at Goldman Sachs and at Hired, an online tech recruiting startup in New York City. I received my B.A. from Swarthmore College.
