I am presently in the process of writing up various papers from a project analyzing the role of schooling considerations in the residential decision-making of families with young children. One paper from this project was included in the 2014 edited volume Choosing Homes, Choosing Schools, published by the Russell Sage Foundation. My colleague Annette Lareau was the primary investigator on the project, and funding came from the Spencer Foundation.

In addition, I was a member of both the 2014 and 2015 program committees of the American Sociological Association. Previously, I was the session organizer for the sociology of education special interest group at the 2007 meeting of the American Education Research Association.
