Your profile picture

I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science at Beloit College and earned my PhD in Political Science from the University of Pennsylvania. You can find out more about my research and teaching in political theory, U.S. politics, constitutional law, and environmental studies on this site.

I am especially interested in the idea of home and its rich resonances in environmental politics and human experiences of attachment to land and place, which I explore in my dissertation as well as my current research in environmental political theory and American political thought.
