I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago. My interests range widely in the history of political thought, contemporary democratic theory, American politics, global justice, and normative perspectives on political economy. My dissertation, "The Many and the Poor: Democracy in the Shadow of Oligarchy," is being supervised by Professors John McCormick (chair), Patchen Markell, and Jennifer Pitts.
