My work strives to integrate cultural and cognitive sociology with the broader, interdisciplinary field of judgment and decision-making sciences. I aim to clarify and strengthen core concepts in culture like “schemas” and “logics.” My research bridges the distinct subfields of the sociology of culture (which focuses on patterns of cultural consumption and production) and cultural sociology (which examines how frames, values, toolkits, and repertoires shape social action).
Inequality and stratification.
In all of my work, I aim to illuminate the ways that both gatekeepers and actors draw upon their beliefs and perceptions of the social world in order to produce, challenge, and reproduce inequality. This work spans topics such as wealth and poverty, occupational prestige, social movements, and underrepresentation in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
