I am a 4th year PhD student at UNL. I received my Masters of Science in Rehabilitation Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2009 and my Bachelors of Science in Sociology and Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 2005. My research interests are primarily focused in the areas of health, inequality, social psychology, quantitative methodology, and theory. My dissertation examines how factors such as identities and negative social experiences are related to health and wellbeing among youth and young adults.
My teaching responsibilities have included introduction to social statistics, juvenile delinquency, and introduction to sociology recitation sections. I am currently working with a number of faculty on projects related to discrimination and health on college campuses, the development of gendered science identities over time among middle school students, and professional development and teaching-related activities among Computer Science and Engineering professionals. I’ve enjoyed my experience at UNL and look forward to continued scholarship and networking in the future.
