I'm an Associate Professor and Chair of the
of Sociology at Bridgewater College
I am also the advisor for the Department's
in Crime and Justice. I have served on the Board of the
Virginia Social Science
Association. I am currently a Board Member of the
Gemeinschaft Home, and a
member of the executive committee of
& Page County Reentry Council.
I routinely teach Sociological Imagination and the
quantitative research methods series for the major in Sociology. I also teach several
of the courses in the Crime and Justice minor including Criminology, Adjudication & Corrections, World Justice
Systems, and the Senior Practicum in Crime and Justice.
My professional interests include: community
development, social cohesion and disorganization, crime and deviance;
networks; the cognition of social structure; the measurement of
fundamental network properties, such as
social distance and acquaintanceship volume; program evaluation, methodology and statistics.
