I offer consultations and workshops to scholars and administrators developing research centers (especially those related to race and ethnicity) and who want to expand their knowledge about funding opportunities, academic publishing, and career paths for scholars from underrepresented populations.
I have contributed to institutional change through building new programs, policies, and practices within the university context. As the Director for the Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society (CRRES) at Indiana University, I had the opportunity to work toward raising the visibility of research on race and ethnicity across campus and beyond; supporting transformative interdisciplinary research; fostering a culture of mentorship and collaboration; building a postdoctoral research program to develop a pipeline of diverse, new generation of PhDs; and advancing racial equity and justice by creating a space and community where scholars can thrive.
As a recent co-editor of American Sociological Review, I have extensive experience with the journal review and publishing process. Part of my tenure as co-editor has been spent reading hundreds of manuscripts and reviews, and helping scholars develop their work. I also have participated in forums and workshops to help demystify the publishing process as well as the process of becoming an editor.
