Research and Teaching

I am an assistant professor of sociology at Goucher College. My interests include race, inequality and social justice, politics, social movements, crime & punishment, culture, collective memory, and methods.

One main branch of my research uses experimental methods to study racial-ethnic-nationality bias in the online housing market. Another branch examines memorial efforts around early 20th Century lynchings and "race riots."  Previous published research has addressed same-sex marriage debates, social movement participation trends, teaching about implicit (unconscious) prejudice, and state-social movement relations. For more, see my CV or the Research page.

I have taught classes including Introduction to Sociology; Race and Ethnic Relations; Race, Class, & Gender; Social Stratification; Protest (Social Movements); Sociology of Education; Senior Capstone; and more. For more, see Courses and Pedagogy.
