I have been an assistant professor in the sociology department at Loyola Marymount University since 2006. My research examines intersections of gay and straight life in aging and chronically-ill populations. My particular focus is on family and kinship, caregiving, and friendship across the life course.
In Fall 2010, I am teaching three courses: SOCL 109 Social Research Methods; SOCL 363 Concepts and Issues in Aging (CBL); and SOCL 495 Senior Seminar (The Life Course)
In Spring 2010, I will teach: SOCL 109 Social Research Methods; and two sections of SOCL 495 Senior Seminar (The Life Course)
One of my current research projects is a collaborative study with researchers at the University of Washington, called the Caring and Aging with Pride Project. This work focuses on the life experiences and health statuses of older LGBT adults:
