I am a Sociologist and Postdoctoral Fellow in Cardiovascular Disease Prevention at the Stanford University School of Medicine. My research examines health, gender, and inequality.
My primary research agenda investigates how diet disparities help drive social inequality in the United States. I study how families across the socioeconomic spectrum think about, purchase, and consume food and expose the implications of diet disparities for parents' and children's health. My work has been published in journals such as Social Science & Medicine, Sociological Science, and the Journal of Adolescent Health.
I hold a Ph.D. in Sociology from Stanford University, a M.A. in Cultural Studies from the University of Bremen, and a B.S. in Education and Social Policy from Northwestern University.
