I'm a professor of sociology at Lehman College, CUNY. I define my work as mainly being about "how people organize themselves to do things together" but you could also say it is mainly about crime. Specifically, most of my publications are about white collar crime, organized crime, and, more recently, the impact of mass incarceration on the communities left behind.  Currently I'm thinking a lot and writing some about open source software, quantitative reasoning (and how to teach college students to think about numbers), and the history of the idea of white collar crime.  At Lehman, mainly I teach Research Methods and am doing my time chairing the department.

In other parts of my life, I write some code, am a board member at Manhattan Country School (the most thoughtful school you can imagine), and have an incredible family.
