My research examines the relationships between gender, technology, and capitalism. My recent projects examine the ways in which digital media pull users into a labor of self-production. This digital labor draws as much from gendered performances as it does from social inequalities. My methodology is a combination of qualitative, ethnographic, and narrative analysis.
Currently I work as a visiting Instructor at Monmouth University in the Political Science and Sociology Department. I teach sociology, sociological theory, and gender studies courses. I have experience teaching sociology courses on the Family, Social Theory, Deviance, Fashion, Sexuality and Gender as well as courses in media studies. I have also taught graduate courses in Public Health and in sociological theory.
When not reading, writing, or teaching sociology, I can be found walking around Brooklyn or practicing yoga. I grew up in Texas and Kansas but, of course, love New York (and New Jersey!).
