I am a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at Indiana University, this year’s Wells fellow, and a consultant for a few groups working to address gender-based violence. I also teach a service-learning seminar on statistics, research methods, and using data to prevent sexual violence in university settings for Indiana University’s Liberal Arts & Management Program.
I’m a generalist interested in how beliefs shape, and are shaped by, social inequalities. Most of my research uses quantitative methods on national, cross-national, and experimental survey data. Substantively, I focus primarily on gender/sexualities, religion, and public opinion.
My work has received a few awards—including an early-career award from Sociologists for Women in Society—been published in Gender & Society, Public Opinion Quarterly, Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, Social Forces, and Science Advances, and covered in The New York Times and The Economist.
