About Me

I'm a Professor in the sociology department at the University of Notre Dame. I was born in New York City, spent the better part of the first 17 years of my life in a (then) small coastal city called La Romana (i.e. "The Roman" with feminine inflection) on the Southeast corner of Dominican Republic, and have lived in the U.S. ever since. I received my B.A. from Brooklyn College and was fortunate enough to earn my PhD in sociology at Arizona under the supervision and mentorship of Ron Breiger and Al Bergesen. My vita has more detailed information.

My areas of research interest are sociological theory, the sociology of culture, sociology of organizations, network theory, microsociology, world-systems analysis and the philosophy of social science. My published papers are available here, as are some teaching materials. If you need more information (or would like to send me some thoughts on those papers!) don't hesitate to drop me a line at
