I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Claremont McKenna College.
Previously I was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at Baruch College-CUNY and a Pre-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I received my Ph.D in philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin.
My research explores issues at the intersections of epistemology, feminist theory, and philosophy of race. Primarily, I explore how race and gender influence what we are in a position to know. A further aim is to consider how failure to acknowledge the role of race and gender in knowledge acquisition facilitates certain harms – among these social and epistemic oppression.
I have also written several podcasts and short articles meant for a wider audience, and I am the founder of the philosophy outreach program Corrupt the Youth.
