PhD Candidate, Department of Sociology, Stanford University

I design and teach undergraduate and graduate-level courses, including on the sociology of gender and statistical methods in sociology. As a consultant for the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning, I also counsel other Stanford teaching assistants on how to improve their teaching practice. I study gender, masculinity, and inequality from a social psychological and cultural perspective. Using qualitative and experimental methods, my dissertation research centers anti-feminist backlash as a mechanism of persistent gender inequality.

I grew up in the greater Palm Springs area in Southern California. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from Dartmouth College, a Master's degree in Urban Education Policy and Administration from Loyola Marymount University, and a Master's degree in Sociology from Stanford University.
