Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hey y'all,

I'm a senior at Northwestern University majoring in sociology and legal studies with a focus on crime and justice. Next year, I'll be going on to get my masters of philosophy in criminology at the University of Cambridge.

My research interests include mass incarceration, the revolving door phenomenon of prison recidivism, and the structural and systemic injustices present within the criminal justice system in the United States.

Outside of academics, I enjoy watching Bull, reading One Piece, and going on scavenger hunts with my friends. I can't wait to meet all of you and pick your brains. Come curious ~
