Areas of Interest:

Gender and Sexuality,
Applied Sociology
My major interests in sociology include gender, sexuality, and inequality. My past research has focused on a diverse range of topics associated with gender inequality in work and family roles including an analysis of the structural determinants of gender composition of university and college faculties, a longitudinal examination of educational decision-making and its relationship to eventual marriage and fertility rates of young women in Cairo, Egypt (with John Gulick, Carolina Population Center), and a qualitative analysis of the work and family commitment of men and women managers (with Catherine Zimmer,University of North Carolina). My current project is a qualitative analysis of the experience of motherhood in the context of domestic violence. I also continue my work on abstinence-only versus comprehensive sex education in public schools. I coordinate the sociology undergraduate internship program and teach SOC 11, Social Problems, SOC 149, Sexuality and Society, SOC 129, Gender, Work, and Organizations, and SOC 199S, Sociology Internship Seminar. In my leisure time, I enjoy watching women's and men's college basketball,rock and jazz music, and reading mystery novels.
