My research to date has focused on examining men and masculinities within female-dominated and feminized spaces. At the doctoral level, I continue to build upon this research by examining how occupational segregation and institutional structures shape the construction and performance of masculine identities. By studying men in sports as well as men in the workplace, I can contribute toward the developing body of work that examines how men create, navigate, and maintain diverse masculinities in both female- and male-dominated spaces. Further, I am interested in extending my research to examine men's health and the body. I am currently researching the effects of head trauma among emerging adults. For my dissertation, I use eye-tracking and qualitative methods to examine how masculinity and sexuality affect reactions to the "inverted male gaze." Homophobia, bullying, body shaming, and body-based disorders are also considered.
