I joined the London School of Economics in 2016 as an Assistant Professor of Sociology, after receiving my Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. My research interests span economic sociology, political sociology, environmental sociology, and knowledge production and science studies. My current book project examines the economic and political governance of climate change through the lens of flood insurance. Previous work focused on the social differentiation dynamics underpinning "green" consumption. I am also collaborating on a project on wine classification in the U.S. and France.
At the LSE, I am a Research Associate at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and at the Centre for the Analysis of Risk and Regulation. I am a Faculty Affiliate of the LSE United States Centre.
I am the book reviews editor for the British Journal of Sociology.
My work has been supported by the ACLS/Mellon Foundation and Phi Beta Kappa and has received awards from the American Sociological Association, the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics, and the Society for the Study of Social Problems.
