My primary areas of interest are race, racism, and racialized institutions. My research examines (1) the color line, particularly in relation to instances of boundary crossing in typically racialized institutions via an examination of white entrance into race-based organizations; and (2) the impact of racialization in family formation and processes, through an examination of transracial adoption.
