" I am passionate about investigating disparities and inequities both domestically in the United States and on a global scale. My research experience thus far has focused on horizontal inequality in Detroit, exploring the city's literacy gaps, and analyzing the impact of deindustrialization and urban decay on these issues. Beyond my undergraduate studies, I aim to pursue a career in public policy and continue my education through a Master in Public Policy program or by attending law school."
