I fell in love with the transformative power of the sociological imagination during my first undergraduate class in sociology, and I have been hooked ever since! I began graduate school with the goal of immersing myself in sociological thought in general. While always interested in power and inequality, it was not until my second year in graduate school that I discovered an unflagging interest in the study of race and racial inequality that has since directed my scholarly pursuits. In addition, I am committed to, and excited about teaching as a way to share the transformational power of the sociological imagination with others. Lately I have been struggling with the complex relationship between structure, culture, and individual agency, and how each come to inform the racial structure and landscape of the United States.
