I am an economic sociologist with specializations in gender, organizations, and development.

I received my Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in Sociology from Baylor University and received a B.A. in Sociology and Policy Studies from Rice University.

My research centers on the role of religion and politics on gender inequality, particularly measured by economic outcomes (labor force participation, wages, occupational segregation, executive leadership) in organizations. I am specialized in gender inequality in the Middle East, with case studies of women in executive positions in international firms, parliament, and the judiciary.

I design my own survey instruments for unique data sets; conduct in-depth interviews and ethnographic observation; I work with original datasets compiled from public sources; and I design field experiments in order to understand dynamic responses for proposed policy interventions.

I have a special interest in interdisciplinary approaches to economic and sociological questions as is reflected in my research collaborations with co-authors across disciplines.
