Biography

A sociologist, educator, and writer, I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. I study inequality at the critical nexus of health, gender, and environment. I use qualitative and quantitative research methods to study three areas of focus: solutions to the social vulnerability exacerbated by disasters, maternal health, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. I am passionate about undergraduate and graduate education; I have taught at the college level for 10 years.
