Research Summary

My core research interests revolve around the politics of class formation, spanning the areas of labor/labor movements, political sociology, social movements, the political economy of globalization and development, race/ethnicity, immigration, and sociology of law. My work centers on five overlapping themes: 1) the precarious working class; 2) politics of community and resistance in South Africa; 3) migration, labor, and collective action; 4) marketization and public opinion; 5) stratification.
