Profile: 

Sociology allows us to make sense of individual experiences by locating them in a particular social and historical context. My research examines the interplay between individual beliefs and attitudes on the one hand, and sociological context on the other.  My Master's thesis explored responses to gender equality development programs in rural Senegal, and my Dissertation examines implicit racial bias.
