Welcome!  I am a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Connecticut.  I am also Affiliate Faculty in the Institute for Collaboration on Health, Intervention, and 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); a Visiting Scholar with the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race at Columbia University (2016-2017), a Visiting Professor in the Department of Sociology at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland (Spring 2018) and a Visiting Fellow in the Institute of Advanced Study at Warwick University in Coventry, United Kingdom (Spring 2018).


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.
