I’m a political theorist and PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago. I work on historical and contemporary themes around the development of capitalism, aesthetics, race, technology, and empire. I’m currently writing a dissertation on these topics titled Factories of Modernity: Labor, Aesthetics, and the Racial Logics of Historical Capitalism.
I’m the founding coordinator of the Historical Capitalisms Workshop at the University of Chicago and a contributor to the edited volume Disability and Political Theory, published by Cambridge University Press in 2016. I have also explored many of the themes in my academic research through my work as a curator and critic.
