My broad research interests are in politics, the economy, culture, and organization(s). More specifically, most of my research to date has focused on efforts by citizens and activists to politicize the market and on the implications of those efforts for political engagement, social change, and the nature of the economy. I also thoroughly enjoy teaching and find it very rewarding when students are inspired by sociology.

If I'm not busy doing sociology, you'll most likely find me rock climbing in the beautiful Red River Gorge in Kentucky (see above) or playing basketball at a campus gym.
