I am a tenured Associate Professor in the  Department of Sociology at the University of Connecticut.  I also serve as Affiliate Faculty in the Africana Studies Institute and the American Studies Program.

I study the relationship between racial inequality and collective understandings of race through (1) white racial identity; (2) racialized organizations; (3) mass media; (4) political engagements with race, (5) science and technology, and; (6) public advocacy with racism and discrimination.
