My teaching, research, public scholarship, and fictional writing focuses on the intersections of sexualities, gender, religion, and health in the interpersonal and historical experiences of sexual, gender, and religious minorities. I am particularly interested in the ways Interactionist, Feminist, and Queer theories may illuminate socially constructed “ways of knowing” via mixed-methodological research.
I regularly teach courses in sexualities, gender, medical sociology, and qualitative methods utilizing applied and critical pedagogies and emphasizing student writing and research development.
I received my Ph.D from Florida State University in 2012. I am currently an Assistant Professor and the Director of the Applied Sociology program in the Department of History, Sociology, Geography, and Legal Studies at the University of Tampa.
