My research covers three distinct but overlapping areas: (1) how gender and sexuality shape workplace interaction and labor market outcomes; (2) methodological and statistical approaches for causal inference, cross-model comparisons, and for modeling categorical dependent variables; and (3) how social roles and relationships shape health behavior and health inequalities. Recent work has appeared in the American Sociological Review, Social Problems, Social Psychology Quarterly, and Social Science & Medicine.

I use multiple quantitative methods in my work, including survey experiments, lab experiments, representative survey data, and longitudinal surveys. My work has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Time-Sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences (TESS), the Kinsey Institute, the American Sociological Association’s social psychology section, and others.

I primarily teach applied statistics and quantitative methods courses and short workshops on advanced quantitative methods. Topics include categorical data analysis, experimental methods, data visualization, missing data analysis, latent variable modeling, workflow practices for reproducible research, and survey design. Course and workshop descriptions as well as recent syllabi can be found on my website.

I am also a core faculty member in the Advanced Methodologies at Purdue (AMAP) cluster.
