I am dedicated to evaluating the impact of race and gender categories in the tenure and review process through detailed quantitative analysis. I am also interested in dissecting how we create and define those categories, define roles associated with those categories, assign power (knowingly or not) to said categories, and how all of that fits into organizations and institutions, specifically working in academia.

Research Focus

Gender equity; Tenure trifecta; Inequity in academic publications
