Bio & CV

I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from Rutgers University in 2007. I also hold master’s and bachelor’s degrees in Sociology from Rutgers University. Prior to joining the Occidental College faculty in 2008, I was a visiting assistant professor of Sociology at Temple University.

Currently an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Occidental College in Los Angeles, California, I am deeply interested in food as a site for sociological exploration. My research, found in highly-regarded academic journals, lies at the intersection of multiple areas including culture, trust, consumption, and the environment.

In Fall 2014, I am teaching the Senior Seminar in Sociology (SOC490) and the Sociology of Food (SOC240). In Spring 2015, I will be teaching The Culture of Food (CSP51 & CSP51S) and Quantitative Research Methods (SOC305).

In Spring 2014, I taught Quantitative Research Methods (SOC305)  and The Culture of Food (CSP51 & CSP51S). In Fall 2013, I taught Environmental Sociology (SOC285) and Sociological Inquiry (SOC304).
