Intersectional feminist scholar studying how the personal becomes political
I am a doctoral candidate in sociology at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. My dissertation examines the causes and consequences of sexuality education policy for gender, racial, and class inequality in the U.S. Using a comparative design, the project illustrates how sexual education policy diffuses across states, and its impact on the routine practices of sex education professionals.
In addition to conducting mixed-methods research on reproductive politics, race, and gender, I teach undergraduate courses in gender inequality, collaborate on dynamic social science research teams, and serve as an assistant editor for leading sociology journal, Social Forces.
