I am the ACLS Postdoctoral Fellow in the Philosophy of Race 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 resilience of social structures of racial oppression. 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 inequality.
