In my research I investigate political geography and the politics of place in the history of political thought as well as contemporary political theory. In particular, my research challenges contemporary understandings of sovereign territoriality. My dissertation, Cosmopolitan Territories: Land, Jurisdiction, and International Law, seeks to revive territorial thinking for cosmopolitan theory through the development of a non-exclusive model of territory.
Some of this research, “Hannah Arendt Reads Carl Schmitt’s Nomos of the Earth,” has been accepted for publication at the European Journal of Political Theory. I have been funded by the Zeit-Stiftung’s Bucerius PhD Fellowship in Migration Studies, and prior to attending Yale, I received a B.A. in German Studies and Political Science from the University of Pennsylvania (2008).
