a bit about me:

Hustle and gig cover 2.jpg

I'm an Assistant Professor in Sociology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, 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. 


My next research project -- examining the impact of high-status gig work and sudden platform closings on gig economy entrepreneurs -- was recently funded through an Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation inaugural Knowledge Challenge grant.
