Katie Kaufman Rogers is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology, Sociology, and Criminal Justice at Regis University in Denver, Colorado. Her research and teaching explore the intersections of race, gender, and class;  work/organizational inequity; and crime, law, and deviance.
Currently she is writing a book about weed legalization and social inequality in the United States. Based on her in-depth interviews with weed entrepreneurs, participant observations in dispensaries, and content analyses of weed legalization campaigns, news media, and advertising, Katie's book will investigate who "wins" and who "loses" in a profit-driven, highly commercialized approach to drug legalization.

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

Katie received her PhD in Sociology from the University of Texas at Austin with a doctoral portfolio in Women's and Gender Studies.
