I am currently an Assistant Professor at Skidmore College in the Department of Management and Business. I received my BA in Sociology at University of Washington, my MBA at University of California-Irvine, and my PhD in Sociology at UNC-Chapel Hill.
My current research examines the social issues at the confluence of new technologies and work. My current projects are exploring why workers are taking jobs in the gig economy and the role of gig work in their career strategies.
I make my courses laboratories of exploration by placing students at the center of major debates and current issues. They’re pushed to confront their normative thinking and impelled to interrogate ideas primarily through case-based learning.
