About Me

I’m a postdoctoral fellow at The Freedom Project at Wellesley College.

I received my PhD in sociology at the University at Albany, SUNY, my MA in regional economic & social development at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and my BA in political science from Emmanuel College in Boston.

My research interests include economic sociology and political sociology with a focus on the politics of taxation and social policy. My current research project looks at the growing use of tax credits as social policy and it’s effect on child poverty in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

I live in Beverly, MA with my wonderful spouse, Mary, and our beautiful baby, Cecily. You can follow me on Twitter here.
