Prior to entering the PhD program, she was an undergraduate at Harvard, where she studied the evolutionary biology of plant-insect symbioses, while also taking classes in environmental engineering and gender studies. After college, she worked as a visual designer in the tech industry before joining the Financial Security research team at the Stanford Center on Longevity, where she worked for a year before joining the sociology department. She is interested broadly in processes of inequality and social stratification. She is interested in the construction of social categories like gender, race, and age; the role of different understandings of “nature” in society; and epistemology and methods in the social sciences.
