What I do

Assistant Professor of Sociology & Criminology


race, class, childhood, preschool, social psychology, qualitative research methods<br>

Professional Biography

I study how micro-level factors shape race, class, and gender inequalities. My work uses original data and multiple methods. My current research includes an ethnographic study of how children experience class-segregated preschools and a study of the shifting social value of Black and Mexican children between 1880-1940.

I am a proud first-generation college graduate and McNair Scholar.
