Welcome! I'm currently assistant professor of sociology at The University at Albany, SUNY. I came to Albany from a postdoctoral fellowship in the Criminology, Law and Society Department at the University of California at Irvine. On this site, you can find information about my research on sexuality, medicine, and the law.
In August 2014, I completed my PhD in Sociology and Women's Studies at the University of Michigan. My dissertation examined the application of HIV law in Michigan, particulary the felony disclosure statute that makes it illegal for HIV-positive people to have sex without first disclosing their HIV-positive status. My current research examines how punishment came to be a legitimate response to controlling HIV and disease more generally.
If you are in search of my former blog, "Trevorade," you can find archived posts here. The blog is no longer being updated, but you can still find the original content from 2005-2011.
ABOUT THE PHOTO:
The flyer pictured above was distributed to patrons of "The Cock" nightclub in New York City, NY in 2010. Once famous for semi-public sex, the health department has cracked down on these practices in recent years.
