actual-headshot-for-website-e1502324431953.jpgI am postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at New York University. In 2018, I received my PhD in Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley and held the Marilyn Yarbrough Dissertation Fellowship at Kenyon College. My research agenda broadly addresses how systems of ethnoracial and gender inequality inform the practices and logics of organizations and culture. My dissertation research engaged a multi-methods analysis of 120 in-depth interviews with Michelin-starred and Michelin-recommended chefs and 1400 restaurant reviews in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City to examine how the organizational and evaluative logics of the American fine dining field reflect and reproduce broader systems of ethnoracial and gender inequality. In so doing, I consider the relationship between racial and ethnic inequality, gender inequality, and cultural (e)valuation to understand how ethnoracial and gender categories inform systems of material and symbolic prestige. My work is published in Gender Issues and the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Business and Management.
