About

Previous degrees:
B.A. Sociology, Simmons College

Specialty areas:
Race, class and gender; higher education; social movements; and culture.

I am interested in whiteness and how it is reinforced within institutions, especially higher education. Additionally, I am interested in the ways people of color navigate and subvert these structures and the ways white people use their pre existing social capital to maintain whiteness.
