David: Researcher, teacher, mentor, and student of sociology

 I'm a PhD candidate at UC Berkeley. My dissertation is focused on how individuals experience remote and digital-form forms of work, and how these forms fit in with their lives. I've also thought about contemporary forms of community, at different scales. I'm dedicated to transmitting sociological thinking and knowledge to future generations (including my nephew Max, pictured).
