My research focuses on the demographics and labor market experiences of lesbian, gay, and bisexual Americans. My dissertation, Out at Work: A Demographic and Policy Analysis of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Discrimination in the Labor Market, uses novel statistical methods for measuring sexual minority populations, examines evidence of labor market discrimination, and explores the effectiveness of state-level nondiscrimination policies. I have research experience and broader interests in immigration, poverty, urban sociology, and public policy. I enjoy teaching courses on quantitative methods, research design, gender, sexuality, and LGBT social movements.
