Talya's past research involves ethnographic work with the Alcoholics Anonymous community, in which she explores how connections are forged across racial and socioeconomic strata. She is interested as well in emotional labor, with a specific focus on the work of nannies and the racial and socioeconomic inequalities experienced in the field. She takes great joy in in-depth ethnography work, but is also trained in other qualitative and quantitative methods.
