About

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology, Stanford University. During the 2018-19 academic year, I am an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University.

My main research interests lie in the sociology of education and social inequality, with a focus on understanding the power and persistence of socio-economic background in shaping life chances in late industrial societies.
