About

I am currently Assistant Professor of Sociology at Quinnipiac University. I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from Stonehill College in 2004 and have a certificate in Women's Studies, an M.A., and a Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut. I have been at Quinnipiac since 2007, and have taught courses ranging from Introduction to Sociology to a special topics course on Masculinities. I regularly teach SO/GT 381: Evaluation Research, as well as SO 241: Racial and Ethnic Groups and SO 260: Social Control and Deviance. My research interests are in gender/sexualities (specifically masculinities;) issues of embodiment (including body modification, body image, and "deviant" bodies) and methodologies.
