Kris Rosentel is a PhD student in Sociology and a GSS Mellon Cluster Fellow at Northwestern. They study how urban governance, spatiality, and social institutions create and reproduce sexual and gender inequalities.

Their current project explores the underlying political and bureaucratic logics that shape the Chicago Police Department’s enforcement of sex work criminalization laws. Kris has published in Sexuality Research & Social Policy, Urban Health, and Transgender Health.
