Research Interests: Racial politics of citizenship and belonging, anti-black racism and the American political imagination, and racial capitalism.

I studied 20th century U.S. history and political science at the George Washington University in Washington D.C., focusing specifically on the racial politics of citizenship and belonging, anti-black racism and the American political imagination, and racial capitalism. Since 2017, I have worked as a legal assistant at the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, an international NGO that partners with civil society organizations and political parties to support and strengthen democratic institutions throughout the world.
