Ph.D. Sociology, UC Davis 2001
Peter Berger wrote many sociologists are viewed as "professional Peeping Toms," people who are endlessly curious about other people and their ways. I sometimes call myself a professional "buzzkill," because what I do is teach about sources of social suffering, in the hopes that we can relieve that suffering. Don't worry, though, a sense of humor is an absolutely essential quality to be a good sociologist.
