I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Florida Atlantic University, and a faculty affiliate at the Social Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis. I earned my PhD in Sociology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research interests include inequality, stratification, economic and organizational sociology, and entrepreneurship. More specifically, my research agenda seeks to understand the structural forces determining who gets what, who participates and to what level they participate in the capitalist production process.
When I am not working, I enjoy cooking, playing soccer, dancing, and hanging out with family and friends.
