Assistant Professor of Sociology
Jennifer’s work is guided by understanding connections between people and places, and how policies produce or alleviate persisting trends in inequality. Her broad research interests are in stratification, urban sociology, and the sociology of education, with specific interests in how social and spatial contexts, like neighborhoods and schools, shape opportunities and produce racial/ethnic, health, and economic inequality.
