Hi! I am a PhD candidate in political theory with particular interests in spatial politics and contemporary political philosophy. 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'm broadly interested in critical social theory, political geography, social movements, urban politics, and dissent. I have also done work on civic education and the early American republic. In the past, I've taught courses on the early American republic, French social thought, and comparative politics. I speak French, and have intermediate proficiency in Modern Standard Arabic. I would be excited to advise both traditional political theory theses, as well as those which incorporate political philosophy with history or comparative politics.
