Cultural Sociology, Collective Memory, Inequality, Comparative/Historical Sociology, Ireland


Ph.D., University of Virginia


I study the ways we navigate difficult pasts and events. My dissertation research focused on post-WWII official and popular memory in Ireland. My current research involves data collection on mass shootings in America, including an analysis of media coverage of these horrific events, as well as official responses to these shootings.
