Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology, University of Toronto
I am a sociologist who studies the political consequences of economic inequality. My research investigates how the dramatic growth in income and wealth inequality in industrialized countries since the 1980s has shaped political life in three key areas: identity, voting, and social welfare. This work contributes to scholarship in political sociology, inequality and stratification, social policy, digital sociology, and health and illness.
I am an author of the forthcoming book GoFailMe: The Unfulfilled Promise of Digital Crowdfunding (Stanford University Press), written with Erik Schneiderhan.
