About Me

I am an Early Career Fellow in Sociology at Columbia University, studying gender, race, and punishment. I primarily research how trans people of color navigate, challenge, and build lives against the backdrop of the criminal legal system. Click here to read more about my research and published work.

My research has been supported by the Center for Engaged Scholarship.

Before beginning my doctoral studies, I worked at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area and performed as a dancer. I am currently a member of Survived & Punished NY, where I organize to free criminalized survivors of gender violence. In my free time I enjoy reading fiction, taking walks with my dog, and eating vegan food with friends.
