Katie Kaufman Rogers, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology, Sociology, and Criminology at Regis University in Denver, CO. Her research and teaching examine social inequities at the intersection of race, gender, and class; work and organizations; and criminal-legal systems.
Currently she is writing a book on cannabis legalization in the United States. Based on in-depth interviews with entrepreneurs, participant observations in dispensaries, and content analyses of weed legalization campaigns, news media, and advertising, this book investigates who "wins" and who "loses" in a profit-driven, commercialized approach to drug legalization.

Supported by the
National Science Foundation, her research has been published in peer-reviewed journals and won awards from the American Sociological Association and Sociologists for Women in Society.

She received her PhD in Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin, where she also completed a doctoral portfolio in Women's and Gender Studies.
