I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Wake Forest University. My research interests include medical sociology, organizations, work, professions, stratification, economic sociology, qualitative methodologies, and social theory. Across several projects, I investigate the reproduction of social inequalities in the U.S. healthcare system, focusing primarily on the everyday practices of healthcare workers. You can read more about my research here.
My work has been published in the American Sociological Review and Social Science & Medicine and has won awards from the American Sociological Association and the Society for the Study of Social Problems. Most recently, my dissertation received honorable mention for the Roberta G. Simmons Outstanding Dissertation Award from the ASA’s Medical Sociology Section.
Prior to joining the Wake Forest Department of Sociology, I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.
