I am a PhD Candidate and Graduate Teaching Fellow in Political Science at the The Graduate Center, CUNY. My work lies within the sub-fields of political theory and international relations and combines empirical and theoretical approaches to migration, citizenship, and the gendered and racialized construction of labor. Currently I am writing my doctoral dissertation on migrant caregivers in Israel and their relationships with Jewish-Israeli citizens, a project based upon field work in and around Tel Aviv. I hold a Master’s degree in International Affairs from The Fletcher School and a BA in Middle East Studies from Brown University.
I am also in my third year teaching in the Political Science Department at Brooklyn College, CUNY. I have taught both People, Power, and Politics, an American politics core course examining grassroots social movements and legal activism, and Contemporary Political Thought, an upper-level introduction to political philosophy since the early twentieth century.
Currently I live in Brooklyn. When not writing or teaching, I enjoy writing and performing poetry, playing guitar and banjo, learning Hebrew Bible, organizing events with the Social and Political Theory Student Association (SPTSA), and co-hosting the Always Already Podcast, a critical theory radio show.
