Since 2015, I have worked as an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, after completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My research areas include climate change denial, environmental politics and communication, and household energy consumption. My work has been discussed in outlets such as The Guardian, Bloomberg, Time, Mother Jones, and others.
I am currently using my methodological interest in computational social science (especially text analysis) as preparation for a new course on Social Data Science, aimed at undergraduate students with little to no background in computer programming. I also teach courses such as environmental sociology, social stratification, research methods, and social statistics.
