Research and Interests: Education, Gender, Work, Family, Intersectionality

Bio: I am a first generation student from Alabama. My research interests developed through the different projects I worked on throughout my undergrad degree. I worked on two different projects examining gender inequality. One looked at student perceptions of gender inequality in the family and workplace, and the other engaged with materials for gender-based violence prevention on campus. My research interests stem from my desire to promote progressive social change through sociology. My goal is to approach all research endeavors with an intersectional lens to ensure marginalized groups' voices and concerns are expressed, and so that I may contribute to inclusive solutions.
