As a scholar, I'm increasingly interested in the relationships among social imaginaries and social movements. I am seeking to employ critical ethnographic methodologies to expand our approach to working toward re-imagining possibility through non-hierarchical organizations and "prefigurative" collective spaces.

As a teacher, I explore the dynamic nature of grappling with sociological inquiry in diverse settings. Ultimately, I hope that when my students walk away, they continue to articulate questions about our world and their roles within it. I hope they explore these questions with the knowledge that systematic research provides reliable answers, while exploring the hegemonic nature of western epistemologies. My hope comes from a belief that such inquiry promotes positive change in one’s life and in society.
