My main research interests lie at the intersection of science & technology studies, medical sociology and social neuroscience. My dissertation project analyses the expansion of the testosterone industry and how ongoing controversies within that domain disproportionately impact marginalized groups. To do this, I employ social network analysis and science & technology studies to identify biomedical controversies related to the risks of taking testosterone therapies as well as how testosterone as a biomarker of risk has changed over this period of rampant growth. 

During graduate school, I collaborated with various research groups to diversify my approach to the social study of biomedical research. In the first project, I worked with Kristen Springer (Rutgers University) and Mary Himmelstein (UConn) as part of the Health, Environment and Relational Ties (HEART) Laboratory in the Institute of Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research (IHHCPAR) at Rutgers University. I contributed to a study that analyzed men's psychological and physiological reactivity to masculinity threats to understand the role that long-term stress plays in contributing to gender disparities in morbidity and mortality. 

In the second project, I acted as a research assistant on a National Science Foundation (NSF) supported study called Discordant Models of Testosterone Function in collaboration with Rebecca Jordan-Young (Barnard College), Katrina Karkazis (Stanford University) and Liz Carlin (CUNY). In the project, we used science & technology studies to critically appraise the testosterone literature, which will be shared in a forthcoming book tentatively entitled T: The Unauthorized Biography

In the third project, I work as a research fellow on a William T. Grant Foundation-funded study named Evaluating Policymakers Information and Knowledge (EPIK) with Itzhak Yanovitsky (Rutgers) and Matthew Weber (Rutgers). In the project, I use social network analysis to map the use of research evidence in the context of federal policies to prevent and decrease rates of obesity among children. 

In my spare time, I am an avid listener of jazz, electronica, and noise music; full-time practitioner of multitasking; and devoted fan of FC Barcelona, the Golden State Warriors, the Chicago Cubs and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
