About

wolf head shot 2021 I received my PhD in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2021. I am currently a research fellow at the Workplace Justice Lab at Rutgers University’s School of Management and Labor Relations and I teach at the City University of New York’s School of Labor and Urban Studies.

My research interests center around work and labor. I study how the labor movement and governments are responding to emerging labor market forms such as the gig economy. My research is based on two years of ethnographic and survey work with two immigrant Workers’ Centers in New York City and by working as an app based food delivery worker myself. In particular, I focus on the impacts of app based employment for immigrant populations.

My research helped inform the New York City Council on legislation to provide minimum employment standards for app-delivery workers and has been featured in the New York Times, NPR, Bloomberg, Thompson Reuters, and New York Magazine.
