Erin A. Cech

Faculty Associate, Population Studies Center.

Assistant Professor, Sociology, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.

Ph.D., University of California-San Diego

Dr. Cech's research examines how inequality is reproduced through processes that are built into seemingly innocuous cultural beliefs and practices. She uses quantitative and qualitative approaches to examine inequality in STEM professions; she examines how cultural definitions of "good work" and "good workers" can anchor inequality in the workforce; and she studies how cultural understandings of the extent and origin of inequality help to uphold unequal social structures.
