Zero-Sum Rights: Student Needs, Parental Intervention, and Hidden Rationing in K-12 Education

Rebecca is interested in health, law, and moral dimensions of public policy, investigated using experiments and administrative data. Current research focuses on how third-party actors shape organizations' rationing of resources--using the case of parents intervening in school districts to secure resources for their child with a disability--and demographic variation in perceptions of consent. At Princeton, she is affiliated with the Joint Degree Program in Social Policy and Office of Population Research.

Before coming to Princeton, she received a B.A. from Stanford with honors in Psychology, minors in Economics and Religious Studies, and an M.A. focused on political theory, and then spent two years as a pre-doctoral research fellow at the National Institutes of Health's Department of Bioethics.
