Graduate Student

I am a third-year student in American Studies and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies originally from South Jersey and now based in New Haven, Connecticut. Prior to starting the doctoral program, I completed undergraduate degrees in English and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Yale in 2020. My research generally examines everyday Afro Asian material cultures in the context of U.S. empire and racial capitalism. I am a current convener of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Colloquium and Working Group (2022-2024) and former convener of the Racial Capitalism and the Carceral State Working Group (2020-2022).

If you have any questions regarding the Ph.D. program or the working group communities, please feel free to write to me at the email above and I’d be happy to answer!
