My research focuses on the demographics and labor market experiences of lesbian, gay, and bisexual Americans. My dissertation explores statistical methods for measuring sexual minority populations, labor market inequality, and the effectiveness of nondiscrimination policies. I have research experience and broader interests in immigration, poverty, urban sociology, and public policy.
I most enjoy teaching courses on quantitative methods, research design, gender, sexuality, and LGBT social movements. I have also taught courses on social problems and urban sociology.
In my free time I enjoy attending concerts, playing the piano, running, and playing with my cat and dog.
