Assistant Professor of Sociology

I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at North Dakota State University. My research explores the intersection of mobilization, international conflict, and social inequalities. Broadly, I apply organizational and community theories to address the topics as wide ranging as the spread of governmental policies that regulate religious organizations, the mobilization of religious members by American churches, and the spread of religious bias and advocacy.
