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, Cosmopolitanism and the International Color Line,puts Kant and Du Bois in conversation with each other in order to complement and extend their cosmopolitan projects and proposes a hierarchy-conscious cosmopolitanism. My broader single and co-authored research studies modern and contemporary cosmopolitan thought, race and racialization of Latinos and Muslim French citizens, the role of gender and race in structuring identity.
