Hello, I am Professor Powell. I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. I joined the faculty at CBC in 2018 as Assistant Professor for Sociology. My dissertation research examines interactions between volunteer health counselors and HIV test-seekers at a free clinic.
Though I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I have also lived in New York City, where I completed my undergraduate degree in Sociology at Columbia University. In graduate school, I worked as a research assistant on projects involving human rights and early pregnancy. I have taught a wide variety of classes including courses in criminology, inequality and global studies, and gender and sexualities.
