I am a doctoral candidate in sociology at Brown University. My research interests span racial theory and racism, higher education, and organizational theory. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My pronouns are they/them/their.
My projects consider how prestige is constructed within higher education, and how ideas of prestige and merit serve as mechanisms for maintaining racialized inequality. My work has been supported by the Office of the Vice President for Campus Life at Brown University, the Beatrice and Joseph Feinberg Memorial Fund, and the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship. For 2017-2019, I am a Graduate Fellow in Community Engaged Scholarship at Brown University's Swearer Center.
In 2018, you can find me at the Du Boisian Scholar Network convening and the American Sociological Association's Annual Meeting.
