I am a sociologist whose research interests include immigration, race, and ethnicity. My work focuses on processes of immigrant integration and racialization among the children of African immigrants. I earned my PhD in Sociology from Columbia University and a B.A. from Pomona College. I also have experience working in youth development programs, having most recently worked with Leadership Enterprise for a Diverse America (LEDA) at Princeton University and Highbridge Voices in the Bronx. Before that, I served as an Americorps-City Year corps member at Harper High School in Chicago. The Bronx, New York is my hometown.
