I am an associate professor of Government and Public Policy at Cornell University. I study poverty, racial inequality, and public policy in the United States, with a particular emphasis on health and housing. My research investigates the ways public policy and political institutions shape the material and political lives of people who are economically and racially marginalized—and the ways that members of such groups gain power to affect policy and politics. ​


I am Senior Associate Dean for Public Engagement at the Brooks School of Public Policy and inaugural director of the Center for Racial Justice and Equitable Futures.
