I try to understand how our tools for determining what is valuable, worthwhile, or good are implicated in patterns of inequality with an acute concern for racial inequality. Often, this means my work investigates the functioning and consequences of a range of scores or ratings, from the less complex government credit ratings to the extremely complex algorithmic scores like consumer credit scores.

In related work, as a part of a multi-university team of researchers, I am using administrative credit report data from one of the largest credit reporting agencies to study credit and debt outcomes for millions of consumers in the United States.
