I will be joining the Department of Sociology and Social Services at Cal State East Bay as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2017. I am currently a faculty lecturer in Sociology & Social Services at Cal State East Bay and a lecturer at UC Berkeley in the Dept. of Sociology. I’m also a research associate at ANSIRH at UCSF and the School of Social Welfare at UC Berkeley.
I completed my PhD from University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) in June 2016. My research interests include medical sociology, fat studies, embodiment, sexuality and health. I also provide research consulting services as Ingraham Research Consulting (IRC). My teaching experience focuses on the intersections of public health and sociology. I view teaching as a form of public sociology, helping students apply a sociological lens to address current world issues from a social justice perspective.
I was also the Project Coordinator for a research project partnership between Lyon-Martin Health Services, a program of HealthRight360, and RTI International focused on health for lesbian and bisexual women. Check out my Research page for publications from this project and my work at Lyon-Martin.
