I am currently a Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Criminology, Law and Society at the University of California, Irvine. Prior to coming to UCI, I received my PhD in sociology from Northwestern University, where I was also affiliated with the Gender & Sexuality Studies Department, Legal Studies, and the Science in Human Culture program. My research is broadly concerned with the interrelationships between gender/sexuality, law, and science and technology. My research and teaching interests include gender, sexuality, law, crime, science and knowledge, risk, classification, cultural sociology, immigration, and feminist and queer theory.

My work has been honored with a Mellon/American Council of Learned Societies Dissertation Completion Fellowship and a Sexualities Project at Northwestern (SPAN) Dissertation Writing Fellowship, as well as the Martin P. Levine Memorial Dissertation Award from the Sexualities Section of the American Sociological Association.
