Personal Statement:

My research focuses on twentieth-century intellectual history, with a particular emphasis on responses to neoliberalism.

Before beginning the Ph.D. program, I worked for several years as a class-action attorney representing workers and consumers, and clerked for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
