BIO

I am a mixed-methods researcher, educator, and scholar-activist focused on improving the economic conditions of people of color in the United States. I write, teach, and work with organizations around racism, inequality, and social mobility. I occasionally share resources on applying to and thriving in grad school and blog about my work. 

 
 

Teaching

"As an instructor, Dr. Hill pushed us to look critically at sources and develop a social scientist's eye for analyzing material, both that we disliked and material that we liked." - Student in Urban Underclass

Higher education can be a tool for liberation, community organizing, affirmation, and also indoctrination, exclusion, oppression, dispossession, and anti-Blackness. In recognizing this dual history, I work hard to create a classroom that is both committed to justice and aware of its own limitations as embedded within an oppressive system. 

 

In my teaching, I try to address this duality by 1) equipping students with tools to structurally analyze social problems, 2) building transferable student skills, and 3) creating a transparent and empowering learning environment.

My teaching interest include race and racism, inequality, social mobility, family, labor markets, and qualitative methods. Below are a list of courses and workshops I've led in the past.

"This course was my favorite so far. The class made theory so accessible and relevant. Dr. Hill facilitated an amazing and encouraging learning environment. I felt super comfortable sharing ideas and growing as a sociologist through theory. The mix of discussion/lecture/activities/student presentations worked really well and made class interesting." - Student in Intro to Sociological Thought
