I joined the Faculty of Environment and Urban Change (EUC) as an Assistant Professor in 2021. Before joining EUC, I worked as an Assistant Professor at California State University San Marcos, and as a Visiting Faculty in Sociology at Christopher Newport University. Trained as an interdisciplinary scholar, my primary research interests include diverse fields such as Black studies, critical race studies, postcolonial studies, Black feminist studies, criminology, transnational feminism, queer studies, environmental justice, media studies, public pedagogy, and public policy (specifically immigration, refugee, health and welfare policies). My research explores issues of gender, race, class, criminality, surveillance, and citizenship, as it manifests for Black refugee communities. My work has appeared as book chapters from Peter Lang and Life Rattle Press. I have also published articles in Darkmatter and Reconsidering Development. Outside of academia, I am a community worker, curriculum and policy consultant, researcher, and anti-oppression educator. I have worked in education and curriculum development in Canada, United States, Kenya, and Somalia.
