Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research focuses on gender and racial inequalities in political representation and resistance in the United States. I express my strong commitment to equity and diversity through my teaching, as well as my research. My in-person and online courses in introductory sociology and research methods implement tenets of universal design and active, inclusive learning.
My scholarship has appeared in Sociological Inquiry, Contexts, Sociology Compass, Socius, and The Society Pages’ blogs. My research has been supported by a Hyde Dissertation Research Award, the UW-Madison ILS Law & Society Graduate Fellows Program, and The Tobin Project. Prior to graduate school, I was a Presidential Fellow at Dartmouth College’s Center for the Advancement of Learning. I hold an M.S. in sociology from UW-Madison and an A.B. in sociology from Dartmouth College.
