Welcome to my website. I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Science in Human Culture program and Department of Sociology at Northwestern University. I completed my Ph.D. in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2019.

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

07/05/19: My article “Gender Segregation and Trajectories of Organizational Change: The Underrepresentation of Women in Sports Leadership” is now available online at Gender & Society. This paper is based on archival research I conducted at the Olympic archives in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2016 with the support of the Olympic Studies Centre.

06/12/19: I am honored to share that I have received the 2019 Hacker-Mullins Student Paper Award for the Science, Knowledge, and Technology Section of the American Sociological Association for my article in Body & Society, “Expertise and Non-Binary Bodies: Sex, Gender, and the Case of Dutee Chand,” which is now available online.

05/01/19: Today the CAS has ruled against Caster Semenya. I wrote this piece for The Guardian in solidarity with Semenya and other athletes with high T who are as much my sisters on the track as any women.
