My research focuses on the reproduction and transformation of systems of social inequality in the United States. I am interested in gender, sexuality, social class, race, and other dimensions of inequality, and the ways in which they intersect. I approach these questions as a cultural and organizational sociologist. Substantively, most of my work has focused on sexuality and/or higher education.

The tabs below describe both active and completed research projects. I encourage prospective graduate students to focus more on my ongoing research as you consider the ways in which your interests intersect with mine.
