Professional Title: 

Graduate Student

Office Hours: 

Mondays 12-2 & by appointment


MA in International Relations; BA in Political Science and Latin American Studies


My research interests are located at the nexus of Marxist, queer, feminist, and critical theory, the politics of colonization and decolonialization, theories of settler colonialism, the politics of desire and dissent, and Latin American thought. I am particularly interested in projects of counterhistory and genealogy as well as critical pedagogy. I firmly believe in a "political" political science with consequences for and commitments to the real world and a focus on the question of praxis.
