The Human in Human Capital: Essays on the Self and Socio-Economics

I am a PhD Candidate in Sociology and Social Policy at Princeton University, as the A. Watson Armour, III '33 Centennial Fellow. My interests are in inequality/ stratification, emotions/ mental health, economic sociology, family demography, and welfare states. My dissertation, Feeling Unequal, investigates the role of mental health in socio-economic inequality. More information about my research is available at

Before starting my PhD, I was a Research Fellow in Columbia University’s Population Research Center (2011-13) and a Visiting Research Fellow in Public Policy at the University of Oxford (2010-11). From 2008 to 2010, I was appointed as a Senior Policy Adviser in the UK Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit where I provided analysis and advice across domestic policy issues. 

I graduated double-first class in Social and Political Science from the University of Cambridge, and have a Masters in Quantitative Methods in Social Science from Columbia University, where I was a Fulbright Scholar. I am a fellow of the British Royal Society for the Arts.
