I am an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology at Pepperdine University. Before joining the faculty at Pepperdine, I received my Ph.D. in the Department of Sociology at the University of Notre Dame. My research focuses on how communities collectively organize and how their organizations shape, and are shaped by, structural inequality. This research utilizes multiple methods and sits at the intersection of urban sociology, civil society, social movements, organizations, and inequality research.
