I am a Research Assistant Professor of Education in the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia with an affiliation in EdPolicyWorks. My research interests center on the policies and practices that affect students who attend community colleges and open access universities. In recent work I have focused on the relationships between online course delivery and student enrollments, course outcomes, and degree attainment.

I am the author and maintainer of a number of software packages, including rscorecard, which can be used to download data from the College Scorecard, crosswalkr, a port of a set of Stata commands that help build master data sets from smaller files in a reproducible manner, and GitRoom Manager, a program that allows instructors to more easily manage a GitHub-based virtual classroom from the command line.
