Tina Law

Tina Law is a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at Northwestern University, where she uses computational and quantitative methods to study urban inequality and race and ethnicity in the U.S. Her dissertation examines the 1967 Detroit Rebellion and its long-term social and political impacts on Detroit residents. Her other research projects include a study investigating the implications of the sharing economy for neighborhood racial inequality, and a study investigating vulnerability to violence victimization in urban co-offending networks. She is a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and a Graduate Research Fellow with the Northwestern Neighborhood and Network Initiative. She is also the co-creator of varyCSS.org, a web-based initiative that provides crowdsourced resources to ensure that the growing field of computational social science is antiracist and feminist.

Tina received M.A. and M.Phil. degrees in sociology from Yale University. Prior to her graduate studies, she evaluated programs and policies that focused on addressing racial disparities in health, K-12 education reform, gender-based violence, and capacity building among minority-led organizations, and she provided research support to nonprofit organizations to support their local community organizing efforts. She is a proud first-gen student originally from Sacramento, California.
