As a Marshall Scholar, I study housing-based solutions to homelessness, pursuing degrees in Sociology and Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation from the University of Manchester and University of Oxford, respectively. I am a graduate of Dartmouth College, where I researched interventions to reduce the stigmatization of unhoused people. Named a John Robert Lewis Scholar, my advocacy has focused on repealing unjust prison and parole policies, reforming police practices, and ending the criminalization of homelessness. I currently support research about preventing homelessness as the Evidence and Data Assistant at the Centre for Homelessness Impact in London.
