  • Affiliated Researcher, INCITE

I am an assistant professor of sociology at Fordham University in New York City. My main areas of research are the sociology of race and ethnicity, the sociology of crime and violence, cultural sociology, social network analysis, organizational sociology, and economic sociology.

In my book, Doing Violence, Making Race: Lynching and White Racial Group Formation in the U.S. South, 1882-1930, I develop a theoretical framework on the link between intergroup violence and such group-formation processes as the activation and maintenance of group categories, boundaries, and identities on the collective as well as individual level.
