I was trained as a sociologist of law and knowledge, earning my Ph.D. in the Department of Sociology at the University of Chicago and a Master of Legal Studies from the University of Chicago Law School.

I am currently a Senior Associate at the Civic Consulting Alliance, where I have the privilege of working to address social problems in a practical context with clients like Rush University Medical Center and the Chicago Police Department.

For 2017-18, I am also a Visiting Scholar at the American Bar Foundation.
