Hi! I am the Research, Instruction, and Outreach Librarian. If you need help with your research or projects, please feel free to make an appointment, stop by, or email me. I am happy to help.​​

My primary areas of expertise include all things sociology, (critical) criminology and penology, race and ethnic relations, urban ethnography, critical race feminisms, social inequalities, and qualitative research, but I am happy to provide research help well beyond these fields.
