My research interests include sociology of education, social stratification, racial and ethnic self-identification, and research methods. I have completed qualitative and quantitative projects exploring organizational and individual obstacles facing low-income and minority students in educational achievement and attainment. Other work is situated on the racial and ethnic identification process of multiracial individuals.
