  • Urban and Community Sociology
  • Aging and the Life Course


I am currently doing research in three main areas:

  • Aging: with Dr. Ron Akers I am analyzing data to assess the relationship between religiosity and alcohol use/non-use;
  • with Professor Jo Hassell in the College of Architecture, I am studying the impact that normative structure has on understanding the role of the “Americans with Disabilities Act” in the workplace;
  • I am also looking at how the imager/message of urban growth is interpreted by different segments of our society.
