INTRODUCTION

I'm an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Indiana University and the author of Negotiating Opportunities: How the Middle Class Secures Advantages in Schools (Oxford 2018). Most of my research is on inequalities in family life and education, and I've spent years observing and interviewing students, parents, and teachers.

I try to write not only for other academics but also for wider audiences, including recent pieces in The Atlantic (on children, families, and inequality), on the Scatterplot blog (on the hidden curriculum of grad school), and on my own ParenthoodPhD blog (on parenting in academia and academia's take on parenting).
