I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at American University. I study how people make sense of concepts like race and work, and why these cultural meanings matter for organizational practice. My work focuses on race, organizations, health, and culture. I am currently working on my first book, an ethnography of a community health center during the pandemic and racial reckonings from 2020-2021. You can see my publications here.

Prior to receiving my PhD from NYU, I worked as a Policy Fellow studying racial disparities at Connecticut Voices for Children, a research and advocacy center. I remain interested in policy and other ways to practice public sociology, including teaching and mentoring.
