My research advances the understanding of two interlocking areas of social inequality: First, I investigate the contextual drivers of inequality, including neighborhood, network, and family effects. Second, I analyze the demography of inequality. All of my work pursues a theory-driven approach to causal inference. I especially focus on problems of dynamic selection to understand how contexts and demography shape individual life chances, their distributions, and their transmission within and across generations.
