My research is in two areas: online behavior (mainly crime and deviance) and racial inequality. Sometimes they intersect, and I study how racial dynamics play out in the digital environment.

You can see all of my research on my page.

My most recent big project has been the writing of a college level textbook with my friend and colleague Dr. ‘Shawn Smith, from Radford University.

My first book looked at how African-Americans are using technologies in unique ways to address racial inequalities, and how the study of their experiences can enlighten the sociological study of online behavior.
