University of Oklahoma
I am an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Oklahoma, where I study the intersections between race and ethnicity, the environment, the climate crisis, development, and organizations. My geographic areas of interest are Brazil and the United States. My current book project focuses on racial capitalism in Brazil’s agribusiness sector. I completed my PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research has been supported by the Fulbright Program and the National Science Foundation, and has been published in the Sociology of Race and Ethnicity, Environmental Sociology, Current Sociology, and Agriculture and Human Values.
