Our Faculty Hires

Emory Sociology's intellectual vitality is partly due to our sustained hiring of faculty in recent years. Since 2014, we have hired the following individuals:

Dr. Weihua An -- originally an assistant professor and now a tenured, associate professor

Dr. Angela Dixon -- an assistant professor specializing in race, colorism, health & inequality

Dr. Rachel Hall-Clifford -- an assistant professor of human health and sociology

Dr. Sonal Nalkur -- a lecturer specializing in criminology and culture

Dr. Cassidy Puckett -- an assistant professor specializing in digital culture

Dr. Alyasah A. Sewell -- originally an assistant professor and now a tenured, associate professor

Dr. Heeju Sohn -- an assistant professor specializing in health policy, family demography & stratification

Dr. Bin Xu -- originally an assistant professor and now a tenured, associate professor

Each of these individuals brings a wealth of knowledge and a passion for scholarship to Emory Sociology. They expand and enrich the curriculum that we offer at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and they have taken the collective research focus of Emory Sociology in exciting and innovative directions. And, of course, they are great colleagues around whom we can build our intellectual community in the 21st century.
