Curriculum Vitae
Research Interests
Inequality, Incarceration, Historical Sociology, Social Theory

I study the political economy of incarceration in the United States from Reconstruction to the present. I am particularly interested in how agrarian transitions, migration, and struggles over land and labor have affected racial and class inequality in incarceration. I have also written on the causes and effects of environmental inequality and the decline in mortality in the early twentieth century. I am generally interested in historical approaches to the study of inequality.
