I study the social structure of science - including its production, communication, evaluation, and reward systems.  In my scholarship, I engage with academic and science policy audiences and publish in venues across fields (e.g., Science, The Lancet, Science Advances, Philosophy of Science).  I have collaborated with the National Institutes of Health and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation to study social disparities in their grant review processes.  My research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and a Career Enhancement Fellowship funded by the Mellon Foundation and administered through the Institute for Citizens & Scholars (formerly the Woodrow Wilson Foundation).  My work has been covered by the Chronicle of Higher Education, STAT, Chemistry World, and Diverse Issues in Higher Education and mentioned in The Stone (a forum for philosophers hosted by the New York Times).  I’m grateful to have received First Prize for most creative submission to NIH's Peer Review Challenge (with Elena Erosheva).

I serve as an Advisory Board Member for the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) Guidelines and on the Board of Directors for ASAPbio.  At UW, I served as a steering committee member for the Faculty 2050 Report which identifies how tenure, promotion, and hiring guidelines can be aligned with the University’s values of promoting diversity, equity, inclusion, and the public good. 

At UW, I am affiliate faculty at the Center for Statistics and the Social ScienceseScience Institute, and Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology.
