Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor of Sociology and International Affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School and in the University Center for Human Values
“The Woodrow Wilson School hones the ideas and the tools necessary for solving particular problems regardless of which disciplinary box those ideas and tools come from. Since I work in four different disciplines, the Woodrow Wilson School is my kind of place.”
My favorite part about the Woodrow Wilson School is that, through its various task forces, we are presented with real life problems and taught to believe that we are capable of fixing them. In essence, this program pushes us beyond our comfort zones and encourages us to rethink how we see the world.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the Woodrow Wilson School and a diverse community that is dedicated to understanding and tackling complex public problems. Through my focus on economics and policy, I hope to gain the quantitative background needed to bring intellectual rigor to policy debates at the intersection of racial and economic justice.” (Hometown: Riverside, California)
