Assistant Professor of Political Theory | Department of Political Science
University of Toronto
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.
My research focuses on Post-Colonial Thought, Decolonial Politics, and Comparative Political Theory. In particular, I center on studies of Indigenous and Black Political Thought, revolutionary movements, nation-building, as well as race and ethnicity in the Americas. My work in Political Theory has appeared in the American Journal of Political Science and Contemporary Political Theory. My public-facing scholarship on these topics 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.
