She began her research at Duke in the Center for Health Policy (now known as the Duke Global Health Institute) and joined the Department of Economics in 2009. She recently joined the Center for Child and Family Policy as a senior research scholar in July 2017. She is a co-PI on NIH and RWJF grants studying the intergenerational effects of the criminal justice system.
