Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology
University of Virginia
Candace Nicole Miller is a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at the University of Virginia. Her main research interests are in the fields of race and ethnicity, urban sociology, inequality, and culture. In her dissertation, she employs a mixed-method design to understand how gentrification-based property redevelopment impacts black-owned businesses compared to white-owned businesses. In other projects, she has examined the impact of residential segregation on the distribution of organizational resources, how race impacts students’ sense of access to space on a public university campus, and how gender-racial expectations produce task differentiation among graduate students working in research labs. Candace’s research has been supported by the University of Virginia, the National Science Foundation, and the Ford Foundation. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Old Dominion University and her master’s degree in sociology from University of North Carolina, Charlotte.
