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.
