I am an Associate Professor and Chair of Women’s and Gender Studies at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy at Fordham University after receiving my Ph.D. in Philosophy from DePaul University in Chicago. My book, Excluded Within: The (Un)Intelligibility of Radical Political Actors was published in 2017 by Oxford University Press, and won the APSA Foundations of Political Thought First Book Award in 2018.¬† I specialize in feminist theory, political theory, critical¬†theory, and continental philosophy. My work is focused on political epistemology and constitutive exclusion and the construction of political agency through gender, race, and sexuality, and I approach these questions through both philosophical texts and political struggles. I am also interested in gender, race and sexuality in urban geography and gentrification and am developing a project that takes up these issues called “How to Read a City.” I teach courses in gender and sexuality, feminist theory, and political theory.
