My current research agenda focuses on social class and access to higher education. I am investigating how higher education policies inform social mobility especially for low-income populations and also generational uplift from these policies. More specifically, I am looking at college affordability since the 2008 recession, federal financial aid support and obstacles to accessing educational opportunity. I am also looking at poverty rates, working poor as it relates to educational attainment.
