I began at WVU Tech in the Fall 2018, and received a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in 2016. My expertise and research background are on stigmatized populations and inequality. Currently, this is focused on ex-offenders attempting to re-enter society following incarceration. Past research has focused on other stigmatized groups, such as military veterans and people with mental illnesses. My work has appeared in Social Science Research, Sociological Forum, Society & Mental Health, Armed Forces & Society, and the TRAILs social science teaching repository. I have also co-written an annual report for the Congressionally-mandated Recovering Warrior Task Force, focused on wounded, ill, and injured members of the armed forces.
