Currently pursuing my Ph.D in Sociology at the University of Chicago, I am co-authoring a book on the experiences of Liberal Arts college students with Hamilton College's Eugene M. Tobin Distinguished Professor of Sociology Daniel F. Chambliss, for publication in 2013. I have presented papers, taught, and consulted on topics related to higher education ethnography and institutional research in a variety of capacities since joining Hamilton College's Mellon Foundation Assessment Project in 2003. I have worked at the American Journal of Sociology on both the book and manuscript review boards, and before that, I worked at the Social Science Research Council web development team as a content management consultant. My Academic interests include higher education, network analysis, symbolic interaction, historical sociology, and sociological theory.
I will teach a class in the spring at the University Chicago on Higher Education: Policy, Stratification, and Culture. The (working) syllabus can be found here.
