I am an Assistant Professor of Political Theory in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto. Previously, I was a Gaius Charles Bolin Fellow in Political Science at Williams College.

 

I specialize in Post-Colonial Thought, Decolonial Politics, and Comparative Political Theory. In particular, I focus on studies of Indigenous and Black Political Thought, revolutionary movements, as well as race and ethnicity in the Americas. My work in Political Theory has appeared in the American Journal of Political Science and my latest article is forthcoming in Contemporary Political Theory.

In American Politics, my research focuses on the study of public opinion, issue-saliency, voter behavior, and methods in open-ended data analysis. My research in American politics has appeared in the International Journal of Political Economy (July 2020).

My public-facing scholarship has appeared in The Washington Post, Foreign Policy, and La Silla Vacia (Bogotá, Colombia).

In teaching, I design courses that introduce students to Political Theory by putting the "western" canon in contention with less familiar works, archival ephemera, and visual artifacts. 

My research has been supported by the Mellon Foundation, Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, American Political Science Association, Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program at Northwestern University, and the Gaius Charles Bolin Fellowship at Williams College.
