Welcome!  I am a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Connecticut, where I also serve as Affiliate Faculty in the Africana Studies Institute and the American Studies Program.  For 2016-2017, I am a Visiting Scholar with the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race at Columbia University.


My research examines 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.
