My research engages with the fields of comparative-historical sociology, political and cultural sociology, and sociology of law. I am interested in questions about the relationship between citizenship and rights, differentiation struggles within groups, and categorization and evaluation processes. My work has been funded by the Pozen Center and W. Allison Davis Graduate Research Award at the University of Chicago, and the ABF Fellowship.
