I received my PhD from the Department of Political Science at Yale University (2017). In January 2018 I will begin a position as Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of British Columbia. In my research, I investigate the idea of territory in the history of political thought and contemporary political theory. My dissertation, Cosmopolitan Territories: Land, Jurisdiction, and International Law, challenges the paradigm of sovereign territoriality and suggests a non-sovereign approach to territory and borders.

Some of my research, “Hannah Arendt Reads Carl Schmitt’s Nomos of the Earth,” has been published in 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).
