About me

If you have found your way here online, you may be interested to know that I have recently taken up a new post at Northwestern University, where I am Associate Professor of Sociology and a Faculty Fellow at the Institute for Policy Research. I was formerly Associate Professor of Sociology and Public Policy at the University of Michigan.

Of course, there's more than a pretty good chance that this is something that you don't care a whit to know!

Whatever the case, this is my temporary home page. Until I am able to construct a more comprehensive one, this is where you can find information about my research and publications.

E-mail is the best way to reach me.

My e-mail address is {myfirstname}-{mylastname}@northwestern.edu.

Thanks for stopping by.
