I'm broadly interested in
inequality, finance, organization, race and ethnicity, and methodology. I'm particularly attracted to data science and statistical graphics.
My other projects
explore how race, gender, and education jointly shape the interaction among heterosexual and same-sex internet daters; how race and ethnicity are perceived; the gap between stylized and diary-based measures of time use; and the labor market and residential outcomes of Hispanic immigrants.
