Sociologist and Assistant Professor at the London School of Economics
I'm a sociologist and an assistant professor in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics, where I am also affiliated with the International Inequalities Institute. I am also a Senior Research Associate of the Department of Sociology at the University of Johannesburg. I received my PhD in sociology from Harvard University.
My research broadly examines how people make sense of inequality. I am currently working on three projects that address this issue from different perspectives: 1) a project on how young South Africans learn about their country's apartheid past and its connections to the present; 2) a comparative project on how elites in Brazil and South Africa perceive inequality and what they think about redistribution; 3) a comparative project on how people in several countries talk about wealth inequality.
At the LSE, I teach qualitative methods to postgraduate students from across the social sciences.
