I am a Sociology Ph. D. candidate at University of California, Riverside. My primary focus areas are health, political economy, and stratification. I utilize quantitative methods (including Social Network Analysis) in my research. I also do data mining, coding, and analysis using Stata and R.

I received my M.A. in Sociology from UC – Riverside in 2013 and my B.A. in Sociology from the University of Central Arkansas in 2005.
