I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University. My research and teaching interests include inequality, gender, sexuality, rural sociology, qualitative and quantitative methods, race/ethnicity, public health, and undergraduate education.

My published papers appear in Social Forces, Sociological Perspectives, Gender & Society, Sexuality Research and Social Policy, and Sexualities (see the "publications" tab).

In terms of teaching, I have a wide range of experience in introductory courses, such as Social Inequality, and methods courses, such as Quantitative Methods in Sociology and Introduction to Research Methods. I also designed and taught the courses “Sexuality and Society,” “Masculinities,” and “Sociology of Whiteness, Heterosexuality, and Masculinity.”
