LAWYER. WRITER. PROFESSOR.
I am currently an Assistant Professor of Law and Assistant Professor of Philosophy (by courtesy) at the University of Michigan. Previously, I served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Chief Judge Roger L. Gregory of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. I also worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia, PA. My work is informed by scholarship in social and political philosophy, law, history, and public policy. I am also influenced by social movements and intellectual discourse outside the academy. My recent research focuses on assessing how we should construct legal and political institutions to respond to various forms of social and economic inequality; the history of African American political thought; the ethics of punishment; and race theory.
I grew up in Yonkers, NY. My interests include basketball, yoga, hip-hop, and staycations. I also write occasional book reviews for the Washington Post.
