I am a qualitative sociologist who studies social inequalities, the sociology of health and illness, as well as the sociology of jobs and work. In my spare time, I also like to scout thrift stores, flea markets, and antique stores for quirky collectibles. I’ve combined these interests in my most recent research project, which focuses on how and why some people collect contemptible collectibles or racist objects from the past.
I teach classes on social inequalities, medical sociology, death and dying, as well as sociology through film and research methods, among others.
