H! I'm Associate Dean for Curriculum and Assessment, where I oversee all aspects of the undergraduate curriculum and help the Office of the Dean of the College use data to understand and improve students' academic experiences. I have been at Princeton for almost twenty years now -- beginning as a graduate student in the sociology department, followed by several years teaching and then serving as a Director of Studies in Mathey College before I became Associate Dean in 2016. As a social scientist I've published a book and a number of journal articles about various aspects of culture, religion, and inequality, and I'm currently finishing my second book, which is about boy sopranos and boy choirs in the present-day U.S. When I'm not at work, I enjoy running, growing vegetables, and being with my two teenaged kids whenever they're willing to hang out with me.
I love being a faculty adviser because I get to help students explore the wealth of outstanding courses that Princeton has to offer; seeing students try new things and find their intellectual passions has been a part of every job I’ve had at Princeton, and it never gets old!
