I strive to ignite social change through critical gender research. My research agenda aims to understand and alleviate sexism, racism, and inequalities in the field of technology, and I have worked with various organizations on the design of inclusive networking and diversity programs. Please contact me if you or your organization is interested in such a collaboration.
I have worked closely with Sociologists for Women in Society and Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society in their public feminist initiatives. At Signs, I helped develop open-access resources through the Feminist Public Intellectuals Project, translating feminist research to broader audiences. Most recently, I have been focusing on the issue of sexual harassment both in my research and service. I co-organized a 2018 conference titled, Higher Ed in the Era of #MeToo, sponsored by the Boston-area Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality. I also have assisted the ASA Working Group on Harassment on compiling member resources.
Finally, for the 2018-2019 academic year, I am a Virtual Visiting Scholar with the Association for Women in Science's ADVANCE Resource Coordination Network (funded through the National Science Foundation HD-1740860). In addition to conducting a qualitative meta-analysis on the research on gender and STEM faculty networks, I will be developing publicly available resources on the status of women faculty in STEM. Please see the ARC Network website for more information.
