SOCIOLOGIST. I earned my doctorate in Sociology from Harvard University. An ethnographer and a data scientist, I specialize in research on organizations, work and occupations, gender discrimination, and industry disruption. My work has focused hospitals, nursing homes, the publishing industry, the KGB, and the Russian mafia.
PROFESSOR. I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in qualitative and quantitative research methods, professional writing and communication, social media, and healthcare policy. I’m tough on my students, but since I’m also a registered yoga instructor, I teach them to meet my high standards with mindfulness and big, deep breaths.
