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, was published in September 2015 from University of Minnesota Press. You can read an interview about the book here.

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.
