Dr Brown’s research examines the political origins and political consequences of social inequalities.  She uses an array of qualitative and historical methods to understanding the effects of political actors and institutions on racial inequality, the effects of immigration and racial divisions on policy outcomes, and the micro-level effects of state actions on the lives of racial minorities and immigrants. Her research has been published in such outlets as American Sociological Review, American Journal of Sociology, and Social Problems. She completed her undergraduate degree at Bryn Mawr College (2001) and her M.A (2006) and Ph.D. (2011) at the University of California, Berkeley.
