I am a PhD candidate at Yale University in Political Science, in the subfield of political theory. My research focuses on American social movements and their close intellectual collaborators, specializing in deliberative democracy, political epistemology, and political thought about race, gender, and sexuality. My dissertation engages in a rational reconstruction of a tradition of ideal theorizing in activist thought as a way of intervening in contemporary debates both about hope in politics and political philosophy methodology. I received a BA in Political Science from Reed College.
