I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where I teach undergraduate and doctoral classes in statistics, research methods, and the sociology of work. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from Brown University. 

My research focuses on work (broadly defined) and life course inequalities in the United States, particularly as they occur during the transition to adulthood and among individuals with disabilities. I'm currently writing a book about internships and the college-career transition.


I live with a fellow data nerd named John and sweet Labrador named Chi-Square.

Occasional updates and musings on Twitter and this page's blog.
