I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Pennsylvania in the Department of Criminology, where my research examines discretion in the criminal justice system and how that discretion may affect the justice system’s response to criminal offending, specifically in courts. I particularly focus on how social contexts and societal attitudes toward psychiatric disorders and different types of behaviors and pathologies may affect the justice process and legal decision-making. My graduation date is Spring 2018.

Before Penn, I graduated from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts in Government and Mind, Brain, and Behavior, and I served as a CIRGE research fellow at Stanford University.
