Welcome!  I am a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Connecticut where I also serve as Affiliate Faculty in the Institute for Collaboration on Health, Intervention, & Policy (InCHIP); the Africana Studies Institute, and; the American Studies Program.  Additionally, I am a Research Associate for the Centre for Critical Studies in Higher Education Transformation at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (Port Elizabeth, South Africa).  In 2018 I will serve as a Visiting Professor in the Department of Sociology at Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland) and a Visiting Fellow in the Institute of Advanced Study at Warwick University (Coventry, England).  I have prior served as a visiting scholar at Columbia University (New York, USA) and as visiting professor at the University of the Free State (Bloemfontein, South Africa).


My research examines the relationship between racial inequality and collective understandings of race through (1) white racial identity; (2) racialized organizations; (3) mass media; (4) political engagements with race, (5) science and technology, and; (6) public advocacy with racism and discrimination.
