About

wilcox_headshot.jpgWelcome! I am a sociology Ph.D. candidate at North Carolina State University with an interest in work and organizations, race/class/gender inequality, diversity, research methods, social psychology, and political sociology.

My dissertation research employs a relational and social-psychological perspective to examine how employees (of different race-gender social groups) who work in a high-tech organization perceive and attach meaning to diversity. In particular, it examines how employees construct the meaning of diversity generally, within the context of their work organization, and within the context of the high-tech industry.

In other current research projects, I likewise examine inequality from a relational perspective, studying, for example, the subjective costs of online job candidate screening and the role of gendered job mobility networks in reproducing job segregation.
