I am a sociologist at Yale University and the author of Refashioning Race: How Global Cosmetic Surgery Crafts New Beauty Standards. I study the relationship between medicine, technology, and society, with a focus on race and racism. My work has appeared in Ethnic and Racial Studies, Social Science & Medicine, and Poetics and has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the Social Science Research Council. In addition to medical and cultural sociology, my research and teaching engage with science and technology studies, racial and ethnic studies, legal studies, and gender studies. My work has been featured in media outlets including Slate, WIRED, CNN, and Connecticut Public Radio.
