I currently serve as an Assistant Professor of Sociology, and am also core faculty of the African and African American Studies Program at Northeastern Illinois University. I have taught courses such as Race and Ethnicity, Introduction to Sociology, Social Structure in Black Communities, and Policing in Black Communities. My research interests include the impact of globalization on the feminization of poverty on a global scale, policing and social control in black communities, the socio-historical analysis of white privilege in America, and American identity among African-Americas. I have experience in survey and evaluation research projects, with both qualitative and quantitative foci. I have received teaching fellowships from both Northwestern University and Texas State University. I was also the recipient of the Hines Small Research Grant in Mental Health from the Mental Health Association of the District of Columbia.

Research Interests
Informed by my broad interest in social inequality, my areas of specialization within sociology include: education, militarization, and sexualities. Current trends in public education include the militarization, privatization, and corporatization of U.S. schools. Coupled with neoliberal ideals and policies, these trends are presented as a solution for the failing U.S. public education system. Unfortunately, most of these failing schools are underfunded, overcrowded, and located in poor and working-class communities of color and few students who attend these schools “make it.” The bulk of my research, to date, has focused on the nexus between militarization, neoliberalism, and the U.S. public education system and how these macro-level social phenomena influence and shape micro-level processes. However, given the current social dialogue of LGBTQ justice, discrimination, and prejudice, I find that the complex web of social interactions between education, militarization, and political economy provides a rich terrain for exploring the social politics of sexualities.

Religion, healing, southern Africa, globalization, immigration, transportation My research concerns the Christianized healing practices of the prophets of central Mozambique, a network of people possessed by biblical spirits who work to heal individual bodies afflicted with illness as well as social bodies recovering from the effects of warfare and dislocation. I recently collaborated on an edited volume about healing in southeastern Africa. The book addresses the important relationship between African healing practices and borders of various sorts, which healers both transgress and reify in the course of their work. I am also interested in material culture, especially the ways objects, buildings, and other materialities figure in healing practices.

Additional Information

My research centers on intimate partner violence (IPV) – psychological, physical, or sexual abuse within romantic and sexual relationships – among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals. Research has found that LGBTQ individuals are more likely than heterosexuals to experience IPV and its many negative consequences, and yet policies, services, and interventions often overlook this stigmatized population. To help raise awareness about and improve solutions to LGBTQ IPV, I am currently working on several projects:

   o    Co-Editor for what will be amongst the first books published on transgender IPV (est. publication in 2019).

   o    Co-Investigator on a 5-year longitudinal study of the causal pathways leading into and out of healthy and unhealthy sexual minority youth relationships.
   o    Principal Investigator on a multi-city study about peer support for LGBTQ IPV perpetrators.
   o    Co-Principal Investigator on a study about syndemic family violence risk factors and outcomes among LGBTQ and heterosexual-cisgender university students.

I look forward to continuing to serve those who live in what scholars have termed a "double closet": LGBTQ victims silenced not only by fear of their abusers but also by the fear that those who are homophobic and transphobic in society will refuse to help them.

To learn more about this important issue, or if you are interested in future research collaborations, volunteer research positions, speaking engagements, or media interviews, please contact me at my listed University email address.

Research Interests
My research focuses on the Sociology of HIV/AIDS, Social Inequality, and Social Movements. I am especially interested in how multiple inequalities (racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, etc.) intersect and how oppressed groups respond to and resist these inequalities. For my first book, Activism Against AIDS: At the Intersections of Sexuality, Race, Gender, and Class (Lynne Rienner Press, 2003), I interviewed AIDS activists in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York, and I conducted participant observation in ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power)/Chicago—a direct action AIDS activist group. I examine how inequalities have shaped the AIDS crisis and how LGBTQ people, people of color, prisoners and other groups have organized collectively to combat HIV/AIDS. For my second book, Transforming the Ivory Tower: Challenging Racism, Sexism and Homophobia in the Academy (University of Hawai’i Press, 2012), Mary Yu Danico and I edited an anthology that highlights how professors identify forms of bias and discrimination in higher education as well as forge antiracist, feminist and queer approaches to teaching and mentoring, research and writing, and social justice work. Some of my other publications are listed below. My research and teaching are informed by my experiences as a queer HIV-positive activist. I have been a participant in campus and community activism for free speech and against the AIDS crisis, homophobia, racism and militarism.
