I received my Ph.D. in the spring of 2013 from Northeastern University, and have spent my time since then as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Chicago and Harvard University, working with Mario Small. My research focuses on the role of children in creating, maintaining, and dissolving social capital for their parents. My dissertation research looked at this connection in the context of a youth sports league, a setting I think is both fruitful and underutilized as a focus of this type of study. My work with Professor Small has examined similar elements, but our setting is a Head Start Center. I look forward to continuing this line of inquiry of two-generational social capital studies. I currently reside near Albuquerque, New Mexico with my wife and two children.
