I am a  Values and Public Policy Fellow at Princeton University and a Women and Public Policy Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School.  I specialize in Race, Gender, Education Politics, and  Political Behavior.  Currently, I am working on two book projects, one on girls and educational achievement and another on the politics of public school closure. In the fall of 2018, I will begin a tenure track faculty position at Duke University.
