I am a sociologist who studies class inequality and American politics
I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Swarthmore College, and the Associate Editor of the British Journal of Sociology. I approach all my projects with an interest in how the world looks different to people in different social positions, and with a commitment to taking seriously the deep connections between economic inequality, racial inequality, and racism.
Before starting at Swarthmore in Fall 2016, I held a post-doctoral fellowship in the Sociology Department at the London School of Economics for three years; before that, I got my PhD in Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. I draw on a wide array of methods, from in-depth interviews to large-scale surveys, from data visualizations to regression models to relational approaches such as multiple correspondence analysis.
