I am a Gaius Charles Bolin Fellow in the Department of Political Science at Williams College and a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science at Northwestern University. Starting Fall 2021, I will join the University of Toronto, Mississauga as an Assistant Professor in Political Science.
My research in Comparative Political Theory centers on post-colonial thought, Indigenous political thought, popular movements, and studies of race and ethnicity. Methodologically, I focus on hemispheric studies of Indigenous, Black, and Mestizo actors.
In American Politics, my research is focused on the study of public opinion, issue-saliency, voter behavior, and methods in open-ended data analysis.
My courses in political science introduce students to political theory by putting the canon in contention with less familiar works, archival ephemera, and visual artifacts. I have taught introductory and advanced seminars in political theory at Northwestern University, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Williams College.
My research has been supported by the Mellon Foundation, the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, the American Political Science Association, the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program at Northwestern University, and Williams College.
