ast_headshotI am a doctoral candidate in sociology at Case Western Reserve University and a 2017-18 Dissertation Fellow through the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.

My research interests include medical sociology, social inequality, issues of race/class/gender, sociology of sport, qualitative methodology, aging, and the life course.

When I’m not doing sociology, I enjoy working out, running, writing, cooking, hiking, traveling, and watching basketball (especially the Cleveland Cavaliers and Michigan State Spartans).
