I am a political theorist, studying spatial politics and contemporary political theory. My dissertation engages with spatial theory, i.e. how spaces can act as political institutions and how power is embodied in material culture. My secondary field is comparative politics, which plays an important role in my dissertation project. I would be excited to advise both traditional political theory theses as well as those which incorporate political philosophy and empirical methods. I'm particularly interested in critical social theory, spatial politics, social movements, urban politics, and dissent. I have also done work on civic education and the early American republic. I speak French, and have intermediate proficiency in Modern Standard Arabic.
