Research Interests

I am interested in issues spanning the spectrum of equity—and that’s everything, right? Currently, I am engaged in many initiatives that aim to protect, preserve, and uplift the most marginalized lives, many of which “happen” to be Black and Brown. History is the telescope through which we must look to contextualize and critique our contemporary research endeavors, and I continually attempt to improve upon this process.
