I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and in the Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the University of Michigan. I work in political philosophy on a variety of issues such as the value of democracy and the nature of our duties toward the global poor. The underlying theme that runs through my work is a concern with equality (political, economic, and social). I am currently writing papers on Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, and Marcus Garvey’s political philosophy.

You can listen to me talk about my work at the UnMute Podcast. You can also see me give talk a talk here.

I run the blogĀ Philosopher which showcases work by philosophers from underrepresented groups in philosophy.
