About me

I am an interdisciplinary law and society scholar with over a decade of teaching experience. My primary research interests are in public health and political violence, especially in the social determinants of health. I am also a constitutions nerd and love teaching and talking about law.

As a first generation college student, I pride myself on student mentorship and inclusivity in the classroom. Additionally, I pair my research with activism in birth work to help people know their rights in childbirth.
