I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at Stanford University. My work is in the areas of social psychology, gender, and medical sociology.

In my dissertation, I draw upon in-depth interviews with current and former opioid users and their families to identify the ways in which they conceptualize agency and responsibility in the addiction and recovery process. 

In another line of work, I utilize both experimental and qualitative methods to identify the social psychological mechanisms that contribute to the disconnect between men's gender egalitarian narratives and their actual behaviors.
