I am a qualitative researcher who specializes in interviews and ethnography. Broadly, my research engages in identity and culture, particularly at the intersections of race, gender, religion and science. Currently, I study multiracial identity with a small group of undergraduates through my lab, MIRROR (multiracial identity research: responses, outcomes and relationships), and astrology as a social phenomenon, which primarily uses gender to analyze the way in which astrology is viewed in the public imagination, as well as from an insiders perspective. I am committed in equal parts to high-level academic research as well as undergraduate mentorship and teaching.
