I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at Yale University. My primary research interest concerns the changing useĀ  of law over time in organizational settings. I am also broadly interested in gender and sexuality, politics and social movements, and higher education. My research is supported by the National Science Foundation and the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy and recently won the Sally Hacker Graduate Student Paper Award from the ASA Sex and Gender Section. I have published in Social Problems, Organization, Qualitative Sociology, and Socius.
