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.
