Ph.D. 2019, Sociology, Stanford University

Molly King's research focuses on inequalities in information and knowledge and the implications of these inequalities for people's lives. She uses statistical and computational methods - paired with a commitment to open science - to better understand who "owns" knowledge and the inequalities involved in its creation and distribution. Her most recent project looks at gender gaps across 16 different domains of factual knowledge. King enjoys working collaboratively and hopes to work with students at SCU on research (if you are interested: please take a look at her website!).

At Santa Clara, King teaches Qualitative Methods, Social Problems, and Inequality and the American Dream. To read more about King and her research and teaching, please visit her website.
