Hi, my name is Daniel and I’m a Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology. I’m interested in social theory, education, and social media. One question I’m thinking about right now is under what conditions are universities' sites of social mobility vs. sites of social reproduction. I’m originally from Boston, MA, but have lived in NYC and LA since undergrad. I hold a BA in Social Studies, with high honors, from Harvard College. I identify as Black, queer, and working-class (first-gen).
