I am currently an Assistant Professor of Sociology, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Africana Studies, at the University of Pittsburgh. I received a B.A. in Sociology (with distinction) from the University of San Diego, where I also studied Philosophy and Peace and Justice Studies. I received both my M.A. (2014) and Ph.D. (2018) in Sociology from Brown University. My primary areas of interest include: environmental, anticolonial, and historical sociology, racial-colonial domination and violence, critical environmental justice, black studies, and social theory. You can find my research published, or is forthcoming, in The Du Bois Review: Social Science Research on Race, Environmental Justice, Humanity and Society, Political Power and Social Theory, Environmental Sociology, and The Journal of World-Systems Research.
