Introduction

My area of specialization is gender and gender role development across the lifespan. I have been particularly interested in women's body experience within U.S. culture, as well as how race, social class and gender shape human development.

Current Research

I study how systems of power, including power based on gender and race and ethnicity, as well as power based on appearance, shape women's and men's body experience.
