I am a political theorist and an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the Ohio State University.

I am also affiliated with Comparative Studies, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Germanic Languages & Literature, Latino Studies, and Women's Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

My research focuses on cosmopolitanism and the political theory of race and gender.  My book project, Kant, Du Bois, and Cosmopolitanism in a New Color, puts Kant and Du Bois in conversation with each other in order to complement and extend their cosmopolitan projects and proposes novel interpretation in longstanding Kantian debates by attending to Du Bois theorization of international racial hierarchies. My broader single and co-authored research is on the political theory of race and gender and includes modern and contemporary cosmopolitan thought, conceptions of freedom adequate for exploring the management of Islam in Europe, and issues of race and racialization of Latina/os/migrants.
