I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Florida. In the Spring of 2020, I will be a Chancellor's Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law. My research and teaching lie at the intersections of Political Theory; Legal and Constitutional Studies; Race, Ethnicity, and Politics; and American Political Development.

My book project - entitled “Corporation, Property, Sovereignty: The Settler Colonial Origins of the Modern Corporation in America” - 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 a Ph.D. in Political Science from Brown University. I also have 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.
