Associate Professor of Sociology

I am an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Oklahoma. My two main professional goals currently include: (1) Improving statistical communication and presentation within sociology, and (2) using longitudinal/panel statistics, causally sensitive statistics, trend analyses, and structural equation modeling to map out patterns in social change over time.

To achieve these goals, I actively seek out collaborations with peers, colleagues, and students in a diverse set of areas in sociology including gender, income/wage inequality, work and organizations, religion, criminology, sociology of knowledge, racial inequality, sexuality, and other related fields. I regularly teach courses on applied social statistics at the graduate and undergraduate level and, through my mentorship, seek to help students and colleagues implement innovative approaches to statistical modeling and survey data collection and analyses.
