a bit about me:
I'm an Assistant Professor in Sociology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; a Faculty Fellow with the Center for Urban and Regional Studies; and a Visiting Scholar at the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University.
My first book, Hustle and Gig: Struggling and Surviving in the Sharing Economy (University of California Press) was released in March 2019.
I'm currently working on two mixed methods research projects:
Work in the Time of COVID-19, funded by a NSF RAPID Response grant, to study the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on precarious and gig workers in New York City, and
After the Hustle, funded through a Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation inaugural Knowledge Challenge grant, examining the impact of high-status gig work and sudden platform closings on gig economy entrepreneurs.
