I joined the Sociology department as an Assistant Professor in the Fall of 1998. Prior to joining the faculty at CSUSM, I attended the University of Washington [Department of Sociology], where, while finishing my Ph.D., I taught courses in the Sociology of the Family and Deviance and Social Control and worked on several research projects concerning racial disproportionality in the criminal justice system. At CSUSM I generally teach courses in the criminology area, such as juvenile delinquency, criminology, inequalities in the criminal justice system, and women and crime. My continuing research interests are family and delinquency, micro level theories of delinquency, disproportionality in the justice system, and classroom teaching strategies.
