I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Weatherhead Scholars Program and coordinator of the Weatherhead Research Cluster on Comparative Inequality and Inclusion for 2019-2020. As a political and cultural sociologist, my research focuses on issues of citizenship, social membership and belonging, especially in relation to entrenched racialized inequalities. My postdoctoral work takes on the problem of Indigenous / non-Indigenous intergroup relations in contemporary settler-colonial societies, comparing national conciliatory citizenship projects in Canada and Australia to local reconciliation efforts in the United States, specifically the Maine-Wabanaki and the Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commissions. I completed my PhD in Sociology at Harvard University with a secondary field certificate in Computational Science and Engineering.
