Personal Website: 

I am a cultural economic sociologist who studies professional work, with an emphasis on gender. In my dissertation I study the experiences of work passion and precarity, including the relationship between them.

My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), UC San Diego Chancellors Research Excellence Scholarship (CRES), and the UC San Diego Department of Sociology Summer Research Grant.
