Public Sociology. Ethnography. Community. Engagement.
As a public urban sociologist, I am passionate about studying people, environments and communities, comparing that with what we already know to create new perspectives on our society and sharing that with both the academic and public world.
I teach my students how we can understand our society and encourage them as well as myself to make that knowledge practical, applicable and useful on the ground via service learning and experiential learning.
I am honored to be part of Russell Craig's Crown series mural dedicated to honoring BIPOC activists in Philadelphia fighting to end and heal from systematic racism and inequality.
