I am a PhD candidate in the Economic Sociology program at the MIT Sloan School of Management.  My research examines how actors signal their capabilities and commitment in order to achieve competitive advantage in markets, advance their status, and develop social relations. For more information about my research, please visit my research page or download my curriculum vitae.

Before joining the doctoral program, I consulted for local governments and worked as a research assistant at NORC.  I completed my undergraduate degree at University of Chicago.
