Professor of Sociology, University of Warwick

Before entering academia, I worked in a variety of grassroots roles—as a community organiser, a trade union organiser and a participatory action researcher—in both the United States and in Britain. I joined the Department of Sociology at the University of Warwick in February 2017 as Professor of Sociology. I am an inaugural winner of the Flax Foundation's Emma Goldman Prize. As a political sociologist, I have research interests in two areas: 1. racial, ethnic and gender inequalities in Europe and the United States and 2. women of colour’s grassroots organising and activism.
