I am a Visiting Research Associate in the Centre for Ethics at the University of Toronto. I spent the past two years as a Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Postdoctoral Fellow at Cornell University.

My research is rooted in democratic theory and the history of political philosophy. In each of my projects, I examine how particular ideas and configurations of power shape how citizens interact with their political community. The questions I pursue require attending to the intersections of politics, society, and culture; my approach to theory formation is therefore interdisciplinary and historically situated.

I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Toronto, my M.A. in Government at Georgetown University, and my B.A. in Political Science and Philosophy at the Colorado College.

Thank you for your interest in my work!
