I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Criminology and Sociology at the Pennsylvania State University.
I research religious, moral, and ideological causes of crime and health behaviors. I study these topics both at the individual and community levels. I am also interested in the application of machine learning and big social data to understanding these phenomena at scale.
