I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Rutgers University. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology at Vanderbilt University in 2018. My research interests include social stratification, sociology of labor markets, work and occupations, labor movements, environmental sociology, and research methods. Broadly speaking, I am interested in how a range of social relations—including racial relations, employment relations, state regulatory capacity and social movements—combine in the economy, polity, and in urban spaces to influence processes of social stratification. More specifically, my research agenda focuses on 3 major areas:
 the institutional drivers and consequences of precarious work in the new economy.
 the interaction between multiple media platforms and the shaping of social movements.
 the role of social movements and political institutions in shaping various aspects of green energy policies.
My research has appeared or is forthcoming in American Journal of Sociology, Social Forces, Work and Occupations, Social Science & Medicine, Research in the Sociology of Work, and other academic journals. My work has also been covered in major new outlets such as the Washington Post, Slate, and National Affairs, among others.
