My research program focuses on who "owns" knowledge and the implications of that for inequality.
My dissertation looks at inequalities in knowledge. It examines at what people know, across all domains of knowledge (e.g. health, religion, sports, history), and how this knowledge is affected by class, gender and race. Specifically, I pursue this by grouping knowledge domains into categories of social significance, and analyzing the distribution of correct factual knowledge in each of these domains by gender, class, and race/ethnicity.
