Main Interests

I teach public policy classes in the political science department at Wheaton. In both my teaching and research, I explore the ways in which public policies influence dynamics between three main spheres of society: the state, the family, and the market. My current research project identifies the ways in which housing policy has contributed to key inequalities in income, wealth, age, gender, and race in both the United States and Europe.
