Research

My research is in two areas: online behavior 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 Academia.edu 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.
