I am a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Sociology at Grinnell College. I study how interactional processes reproduce inequality. Currently, I'm writing about how high school students
make post-secondary decisions (such as where and whether to

2012 from the Department of Sociology at Rutgers University, with a graduate certificate in Women's and Gender Studies.
I teach courses including sociology of education, culture, self
& society, sociological theory, methods, and introduction to
