I am an Assistant Professor (aka Lecturer ASER) of Sociology at the University of Essex.
I study time for a deeper understanding of social inequalities. I am particularly interested in how structural inequalities can be addressed through socially responsible time use policies. My research interests broadly encompass areas of stratification, well-being, social networks, migration, gender, economic sociology, and demography.
My work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, United States Agency for International Development, UC Berkeley's Canadian Studies Program, UC Berkeley's Social Sciences Data Laboratory, and by the Soros Fellowship for New Americans.
I have collaborated with the Barcelona Time Use Initiative for a Healthy Society, Eurofound, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, and the Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative.
When not pondering the minutia of time, I love traveling, photography, painting, studying internal martial arts, and playing my hang drum and didgeridoos.
