Erik S. Lovell, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor at University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign

I am a sociologist working at the intersections of inequality, poverty, and homelessness; public policy; gender and sexualities; and, social theory. I’m dedicated to public-facing research and community-engaged teaching. I enjoy connecting with others working on similar projects – so please, reach out!
