I research gun ownership and how the criminal justice system interacts with inequality. I use preregistered experiments (forced-choice conjoint and vignette), longitudinal designs (smartphone-delivered surveys), semi-structured interviews, participant observation, and topic modeling. I teach research methods and how to critically analyze crime policy (syllabus).

My active projects include:

  1. Reconsidering causal theories of neoliberalism - SSSP conference paper here - Received the 2023 Society for the Study of Social Problems Theory Division Student Paper Award
  2. Evaluating the Shadow Costs of treatment programs
  3. Investigating how socioeconomic hardship affects desire for guns
  4. Assessing how gun ownership affects neighborhood socialization
