Tina received a B.A. in sociology from Grinnell College and a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Iowa. In 2008, she relocated from the flat plains of the Midwest to the rolling hills of Western Massachusetts. She teaches Sociology of Education and Research Methods.
Her research focuses on racial, ethnic and socioeconomic inequalities in the American education system. A forthcoming article examines the role of cultural capital in the academic achievement process for high school students. Tina's current projects examine differences in academic achievement between African American and white high school students, with a particular focus on how certain school contexts may exacerbate these gaps.
When she's not working, you probably can find Tina running on the trails around Northampton or testing her threshold for physical pain in the gym.
