As a sociologist, my research focuses on the use and evolution of language, especially in religious contexts. My work has appeared in the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, Poetics, Sociological Perspectives, and Socius. I received my PhD from the Department of Sociology at Emory University and am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Scholarship at the Emory Center for the Study of Law and Religion.

I am passionate about data visualization, statistics, and recent developments in computational text analysis, and have led over 20 hours of training workshops in R. I also enjoy dogs, sailboats, and old-time music.
