Addtional Information

Currently I am working on my personal research project titled "Network Structures of the Black Middle Class" under the guidance of Dr. Pamela Barboy Jackson. I am a research assistant in the Sociology/ Social Psychology lab. My research interest lie in the areas of political sociology/sociology of the state and race & ethnicity. More specifically, I’m interested in the relationship between racial minorities and national governments and the institutional consequences fostered by these relational dynamics.
