Postdoctoral Research Associate

I am a Postdoctoral Associate affiliated with the Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research and the Religion and Social Change Lab (RaSCL). My scholarship applies a critical lens to the policy impacts, pedagogy, and philosophy of religious schools and school systems in the U.S. and globally.

I hold a PhD in Educational Leadership from Miami University, an MTS and a dual BA in International Studies and Theology from Boston College. Previously, I worked in urban Catholic secondary education and immigration law.

In my role at Duke University, I contribute to qualitative data collection and analysis for the Seminary to Early Ministry (SEM) Study. This longitudinal, mixed methods, multi-cohort study follows divinity school students from matriculation into the early years of their careers seeking to understand how seminary impacts students’ health, occupational wellbeing, theology, sociopolitical disposition, and career trajectories.
