About Koji Chavez

I received my Ph.D. in sociology from Stanford University, after which I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis. My current research focuses on inequality-producing social processes within organizations. Specifically, I focus on how gender, race, ethnicity, and “foreignness” influence job candidate evaluations and legitimation of hiring decisions. I take a “mixed methods” approach in my work to provide a comprehensive view sociological phenomena. I also teach courses on the sociology of work, and on race and ethnic intergroup relations.
