My research examines organizations, race, and inequality. My current project on for-profit colleges, race, gender, and class contributes to a growing literature on stratification and higher education. I examine the stratified processes that deliver the most vulnerable students into the most expensive, least prestigious, and most contested sector of higher education. Future interests include a comparative organizational study of education and work-life benefits and a discourse analysis of the construction of racism in new media. I teach stratification, sociology of education, race/ethnicity and research methods at the undergraduate and graduate level.
