James Tompsett

Hello! I am a third year PhD student at OSU originally from Chicago. My research interests are sociology of education, sociology of sport, and stratification. Outside of the department I like to spend time being active, watching basketball and soccer, and trying new places to eat. I also sing in my church choir and symphony chorus. If you are curious about the program or Columbus more broadly, feel free to shoot me an email!
