I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science at Brown University. My research and teaching lie at the intersections of Political Theory; Legal and Constitutional Studies; Race, Ethnicity, and Politics; and American Political Development.
My dissertation - entitled “Corporations, Property, Sovereignty: The Colonial Origins of the American Corporation” - disinters the settler colonial and revolutionary origins of the modern corporation in America. It has been supported by the Ford Foundation, the National Science Foundation and the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, and the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice.
I hold an M.P.P. from the Harvard Kennedy School, where I concentrated in Democracy, Politics, and Institutions; and a B.A. magna cum laude from the College of William & Mary, where I majored in Government and Economics.
