Welcome! I am a professor of sociology at the University of Michigan. I joined the U-M faculty in  2009, returning to my undergraduate alma mater. I graduated from Michigan with a double major in sociology and computer science in 1988.  I received my Ph.D. from the UC-Berkeley Department of Sociology and taught at Indiana University-Bloomington from 2000-09. I spent 2007-08 at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, and 2018-19 at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University. My research focuses on the reproduction of gender, class, and race inequalities. I examine these processes in the domain of sexuality and within the organizational context of the university.
