As a sociologist, I believe that an understanding of empirical evidence and how it is generated helps enrich the way that we think about both research and current events. In my teaching, I strive to convey these perspectives and their value to my students, regardless of whether they aspire to become sociologists.

In Summer 2017, I taught Soc 120: Marriage and the Family at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Click here for my syllabus.
