Welcome to my website. I am a PhD candidate in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and 2018-19 Fellow for the Center for Engaged Scholarship

My research and teaching interests include gender, Science and Technology Studies (STS), health and medicine, embodiment, political sociology, organizations, socio-legal studies, and physical cultural studies.

04/16/19: My Master’s research on participatory budgeting in Chicago has made it through the publication pipeline and has been accepted for publication at Sociological Forum, co-authored with Chaeyoon Lim. Our abstract can be read here.

02/18/19: With Caster Semenya’s historic appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport starting today, I wanted to share a piece I wrote for SBS Zela in Australia during the Rio Olympic Games to remind us all that a change of heart is possible.
