About me: I currently teach courses in the Sociology-Anthropology Department at UMD. I came to this institution after receiving my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1982. My areas of teaching expertise include research methods and statistics, sociology of the family, social stratification, and demography. I have also taught courses in introductory sociology, sociology of sport, children and childhood, divorce, family violence, and introduction to college learning. Most of my research has been focused on family and children's issues. I have also published articles on teaching and learning and am currently studying the role of web based homework in college courses. I am working with a team of researchers here at UMD to evaluate the climate for women faculty. Outside of work, I enjoy running, cross country skiing, hiking, paddling a kayak, camping, music, gardening, and spending time with my family. My husband and I have three children and one grandchild, and they are my greatest source of joy and inspiration.
