About me

My dissertation is on transnational labor organizing in the Global South. It’s a comparative study in South Africa and India. I’m interested in political economy, history, social movements, the Left, and labor studies.

I’ve done a few projects with Antonia Levy in this Department, who is one of the smartest people I know. I threw a party for Patrick Inglis’ 30th birthday that had great GC Sociology Department representation.

I help to organize the yearly Left Forum that lots of GC students participate in.

I came here an activist, and I hope to leave with a job that allows me time to do more activism.
