I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles specializing in political theory.  My dissertation, “Bodies of Text: Biography and the Politics of Life,” examines the intersection of biography, history, and politics in the formation of individual subjectivities.  An article adapted from one of my dissertation chapters, “To Err Is Human: Biography vs. Biopolitics in Michel Foucault,” is forthcoming in Contemporary Political Theory.

More broadly, my research and teaching interests include the history of political thought, contemporary political thought, politics and literature, race and ethnicity, and legal thought.
