Hello! I’m a second year in the department. My research interests include families, emotions, race and oppression and I’m currently completing a qualitative Master’s thesis. When I’m not working, I like to practice piano, explore nature and play with my cat. I can answer broad questions about the department or Columbus, but I’m also a queer woman of color and can speak to those experiences as well. If needed, I’ll happily connect you to colleagues who can also provide their valuable perspectives. Please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Hi! I’m a third year in the department, and I study stratification, urban sociology, race, and criminology. For fun, I play soccer, try out new coffeeshops, enjoy the outdoors, and travel. Columbus is a great spot for all of these, and I am happy to answer questions about the program, graduate school, research, or Columbus. Feel free to reach out!
