I am Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at Temple University. Prior to Temple, I completed a PhD in philosophy at Columbia University.

My research lies at the intersection of philosophy of race, social philosophy, and the social sciences. I am also interested in issues in Africana and Latin American philosophy.


My current project draws on these fields to develop an interdisciplinary framework for explaining the reproduction of systemic racism. I am especially interested in explaining what leads agents who self-identify as non-racist to lend their support (active or passive) to practices, policies, and institutions that reinforce racial oppression.

I recently organized the 6th Latinx Philosophy Conference and I am currently planning the next one, which will take place in Spring 2023.
