I am an assistant professor in Cultural Studies at George Mason University. I completed a Ph.D. in Sociology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York (CUNY) in 2010, and spent Fall 2010 as a Visiting Scholar at the University of California Riverside with the Department of Ethnic Studies and Center for Ideas and Society. At George Mason, I am the faculty adviser for Students Against Israeli Apartheid.

My study of how racialized housing insecurity becomes organized as a governable social problem, The Value of Homelessness: Managing Surplus Life in the United States, is forthcoming in 2015 from University of Minnesota Press.

I’m always happy to discuss my work, and I gladly receive suggestions of new things to read and think through. Feel free to say hello.
