I am a doctoral candidate and researcher at New York University. I am studying issues of educational equity, and I am hoping to become a professor or work in education policy. I used to be a school teacher in New York City. I taught 6th grade and 5th grade. I live in Brooklyn with my husband. Outside of studying, I like to do yoga, read fiction, and go for long walks. I am a vegetarian and I love to cook and discover new delicious restaurants in NYC. I speak some German and Spanish.
