Concentration: Sociology

Certificates: Statistics and Machine Learning, Applications of Computing

Hi! I'm a rising senior in the Sociology Department, and I'm originally from South Brunswick, NJ, which is about 15 minutes up the road from Princeton. On the academic side, I'm really interested in educational equity, organizational structures, and the gig economy. I'm also pursuing a Statistics & Machine Learning certificate and an Applications of Computing certificate—I enjoy the combination of qualitative and quantitative sociology research. Besides sociology, I've really enjoyed the music classes I've taken, as well as a digital animation class that was spectacularly fun. Outside of classes, I love trying new foods, cooking, fermenting, and reading. My favorite TV show is Community, and my favorite band is Vulfpeck. I'm excited to be your PAA, and I'm looking forward to meeting you soon!

What's a favorite memory from your first year at Princeton?

This isn't really a specific memory as it is a feeling, but I absolutely miss my freshman year study group—we would sit in a big conference room together and work and hang out every day... I especially remember our movie nights, when we would use the projector to watch movies with snacks and all of our friends.
