I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Louisville. My research and teaching interests lie in modern and contemporary political theory, particularly Black and Indigenous political thought, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the transnational politics of race, empire, and inequality.
My work has been published or is forthcoming in Contemporary Political Theory, Race & Class, Political Theory, Theory & Event, The Black Scholar, and in an edited volume, Creolizing Rosa Luxemburg. In 2022, I was named a co-winner of the American Political Science Association’s Leo Strauss Award, presented annually for the best dissertation in political philosophy. Currently, I am working on a book manuscript, titled Theorizing Racial Capitalism in the Era of Black Lives Matter.
Prior to joining the University of Louisville, I was a Rising Scholar Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2021.
