I am a third-year PhD student and recipient of the Chancellor’s Fellowship for Graduate Study and 2021-2022 Mentored Research Award. I received my BA (summa cum laude) in English Honors and Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies from the University of Washington in 2019.

My budding dissertation explores the intimacies of U.S. liberalism & fascism via black, indigenous, and women of color feminist and communist thought surrounding and emerging alongside the Black Panther Party’s 1969 United Front Against Fascism conference in Oakland.
