​Professor Wingfield specializes in research that examines the ways intersections of race, gender, and class affect social processes at work.

In particular, Wingfield is an expert on the workplace experiences of minority workers in predominantly white professional settings, and specifically on black male professionals in occupations where they are in the minority. 

Wingfield has lectured internationally on her research in this area, and her research has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals including Social Problems, Gender & Society, Qualitative Sociology, and American Behavioral Scientist. She is the author of several books, most recently the award-winning No More Invisible Man: Race and Gender in Men’s Work (Temple University Press).
