Welcome!


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 current book project explores and traces the settler colonial and revolutionary origins of the modern corporation in America. ‚ÄčIt 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.
