Academic Background

  • Doctorate

    • University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, USA
    • PhD in Sociology

Professional Interests

Teaching

I serve as an area editor for the American Sociological Association's TRAILS (Teaching Resources and Innovations Library), a peer reviewed digital library of high quality teaching resources for sociology, in the areas of Emotions and Socialization. My teaching interests include Social Psychology, Theory, Sociology of Medicine, Sociology of Art, and Research Methods

Research

My research focuses on social interaction in culture industries. I utilize qualitative methods in that research, focusing on in-depth interviewing, participant observation, and qualitative content analysis of documents.  In particular, I am interested in understanding the social psychological and micro sociological forces that affect work processes in arts organizations, and the effects this has on artists and the art that they make.
