I am a Ph.D. student, Paul F. Lazarsfeld Fellow, and Harvey Fellow in the Department of Sociology at Columbia University. My research investigates the micro and macro dimensions of culture and inequality, particularly their intersections with the economy, education, and science and technology. In my latest work, I am interested in how the proliferation of personal data impacts cultural and economic life as well as contributes to exacerbating or transforming inequality. Specifically, I study how the growth of personal data shapes identity and the relationships between individuals and economic institutions.
To explore related questions, I employ various quantitative and qualitative methodologies, including the analysis of large-scale survey data, ethnography, and interviews. I am also interested in computational social science as a tool for understanding macro cultural change.
Beyond research, I have served for four years as a teaching assistant for undergraduate and graduate courses, including introductory sociology, research methods, and quantitative methods, as well as advising undergraduate theses.
