I am currently a PhD Candidate¬†in sociology at UC Irvine where my areas of research include family, disability, the life course, education, inequality, and health. My dissertation uses quantitative methods to examine the association of having a sibling with a disability on children’s outcomes, including early childhood behavioral problems, adolescent risk-taking¬†behaviors, and young adult educational attainment. I am also interested in mixed method approaches.
