Caroline's current research examines how racialization and cateogrization shift in response to societal instability. Her study uses comparative-historical methods to investigate how elites reestablish or maintain power through affecting the racialization, and consequently social mobility, of a strategic ethnoracial minority. Caroline also conducts research concerning women's reproductive health and how various factors (race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, size, etc.) impact accessing quality gynecological and obstetric care. In addition to her personal research, Caroline collaborates on projects that analyze the role of Women CEOs in China regarding firm innovativeness and their impact on firm organization via critical representation.
