My areas of teaching and research include cultural sociology, complex organizations, and social movements. My work spans a range of areas that examine and analyze mechanisms and impacts of social change and transformation. How is inequality produced and maintained through the conflux of cultural, organizational, and institutional systems, as well as embodied in the lives and everyday experiences of individuals and groups? How do marginalized actors engage in collective mobilization to resist and undermine social boundaries?
