Dr. Wilson’s research examines how social inequalities of race, class, and gender get reproduced - and sometimes contested - in today's workplaces, particularly those that involve service and consumption. His scholarship illuminates how the forces that perpetuate inequality do not merely reflect managerial malpractice but rather a series of interconnected processes that embed systemic advantages and disadvantages for workers within organizational structures. As a trained ethnographer, Dr. Wilson approaches these research themes from the ground up, anchored by the experiences and perspectives of workers themselves.

Dr. Wilson received his PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles. He was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii.
