My name is Whitney N. Laster Pirtle and I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology. My research interests span the areas of Race and Race Making, Social Psychology, the Sociology of Mental Health, and Quantitative Methods.

The blog chronicles my PhD process mostly by sharing tips I’ve learned along the way. It began as an outlet while I was trying to finish my PhD and now, as I transition into my first position, I will continue to blog about graduate school advice, my research, and my life on the track.
