I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University. My research focuses on medicine, science, work and occupations, knowledge, and theory.

A few years ago, I received the 2013 American Sociological Association Outstanding Dissertation Award, and am now working on a book manuscript related to this project. It develops an argument about the relationship between medical knowledge and medical practices, and its link to the development and decay of authority.

Recently, I was honored to receive the 2017 MSU Teacher-Scholar Award.

I received my BA from the University of Wisconsin--Madison, my MPhil from the University of Cambridge, and my MA and PhD from the University of Chicago.
