Postdoctoral Fellow, Rutgers University, Center for Gender and Sexuality Law and Policy
I earned my B.A. from Michigan State University and my M.A. and Ph.D. in Sociology from Rutgers University. My research focuses on socioeconomic and health inequalities, with an emphasis on the role of social relationships. My graduate work included examining post-incarceration mentor preferences in prison populations. My dissertation assessed the effects of early physical and sexual victimization on adult socioeconomic status (SES), with a focus on females and racial and ethnic minorities. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Rutgers Center for Gender and Sexuality Law and Policy in Newark.
