I am a third-year PhD student in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto. I am currently completing my qualifying year under the supervision of Rebecca Comay. I am also a founding member of the Dialectics Reading Group.

My research interests lie in German Idealism (especially Hegel), Social and Political Philosophy, and Continental Philosophy. I'm particularly interested in the interaction of dialectics, broadly construed, with political economy, digital theory, and critical theories of the contemporary—psychoanalytic, racial, queer.

I completed a master's degree in philosophy at Georgia State University in 2018. My thesis explored the concepts of education, abstract labor, and machine automation in Hegel’s Philosophy of Right, recovering some resources for a post-work politics along the way.

Prior to graduate school, I worked as a data scientist in Boston, MA and have a background in statistics and machine learning.
