I am a sociologist who specializes in how gender is changing in the twenty-first century. I am particularly interested in the social demography of LGBTQ populations. My work has been published in the American Sociological Review, Demography and the Annual Review of Sociology.
I received my PhD in sociology from the University of Chicago in April of 2019. During the 2019-2020 academic year, I was an NICHD Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin’s Population Research Center.
