wilcox_headshot.jpgWelcome! I am a sociology Ph.D. candidate at North Carolina State University with an interest in work and organizations, social inequalities, research methods, theory, social psychology, and political sociology.

My dissertation research employs a relational and social-psychological perspective to examine perceptions of diversity across individuals (of different race-gender social groups) who work in a high-tech organization. In particular, it examines how individuals variously define diversity, perceive relational dynamics in their workplace, and perceive the role of diversity in tech culture.

In other current research projects, I examine the role of gendered job mobility networks in reproducing job segregation and the influence of employment security on racially unequal job satisfaction.
