I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Georgia Tech School of Public Policy in Atlanta, GA. My research examines scientific careers, training, and workplaces, with a focus on academic research productivity in lower-resourced and emergent research institutions in the United States.My work has been published in outlets including Computers & Education, Computer Science Education, the proceedings of the American Society of Engineering Education, and The Internet and Higher Education.

In my teaching, I seek to foster student engagement with the broader community, develop student autonomy and research skills through student-lead projects, provide detailed and individualized feedback, and illuminate subtle and unintuitive elements of academic culture. 

I am currently seeking a tenure-track academic position in Public Policy, Public Administration, or Higher Education Studies.
