Publications

"Instability of Work and Care: How Work Schedules Shape Child-Care Arrangements for Parents Working in the Service Sector" (with Kristen Harknett, Allison Logan, Sigrid Luhr, and Daniel Schneider). Social Service Review 91, no. 3 (September 2017): 422-455.

Examines the relationship between work schedule instability and child care arrangements. Finds differences between those with consistent schedules compared to those with changing, unstable schedules. Finds that informal child care arrangements are extremely common among service sector workers.

"Unity out of Adversity: Non-Profit Organizations’ Collaborative Strategies to Serve Immigrants in Bay Area Suburbs," Institute for the Study of Societal Issues, 2016.

Evaluates the work done by non-profit organizations in the Bay Area suburbs, as the geography of poverty in the region has changed from urban to suburban. Finds that suburban non-profits have fewer resources, but are more cohesive and able to provide services like legal aid to immigrants.

"Politics and Group Belonging: Predictors of Naturalisation Behaviour in France" Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies 41, no. 12 (May 2015): 1932-1957.

Examines how interest in politics and group belonging impact decisions to seek naturalization in a European context. Finds that anti-immigrant climate, Muslim identity, or a feeling of otherization are negatively associated with naturalization.
