Bio/Research

The interest that motivates much of my current research is how social processes like immigration, intermarriage, or interpretations of new technologies challenge racial boundaries and transform classification systems. My focus in this area is usually tied to its implications for stratification and race relations. I am interested in how concepts of race and ethnicity change and how those changes shape actual social interactions and relations between ethnic and racial groups.

My research is often multidisciplinary in orientation. I was a Fellow in the Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality and Social Policy at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government from 2000-2006 and a Junior Early Career Scholar at the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies in 2007-2008. My interests often lie in the intersection between sociology and such fields as political science, social policy, economics, anthropology, organizational behaviour, and biology.

I am also interested in comparative and transnational research, and in both qualitative and quantitative research methods.
