Associate Professor of Sociology

University of Oklahoma

I am an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Oklahoma. My research activities fall into two broad areas of interest: (1) exploring how labor market practices shape religious organizations and (2) using longitudinal statistics, trend analyses, and structural equation modeling to map out how religious beliefs, practices, and membership in the US have changed over time. To expand and develop research in these areas, I have actively sought out collaborations with peers, colleagues, and students to implement innovative approaches to statistical modeling and survey data collection and analyses. I regularly teach courses on applied statistics at the graduate and undergraduate level.
