I am a doctoral candidate in sociology at Brown University. My research interests span racial theory and racism, higher education, and organizational theory. You can reach me at email@example.com. My pronouns are they/them/theirs.
My projects consider how merit has been historically constructed within higher education by exploring the relationship between slavery, colonialism, and higher education. My work has been supported by The Institute for Transformative Practice at Brown University, the Beatrice and Joseph Feinberg Memorial Fund, the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity at Brown University, and the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship. For 2017-2019, I am a Graduate Fellow in Community Engaged Scholarship at Brown University's Swearer Center.

I do not capitalize my name, but am not offended if you do forget to do so. I do not feel similarly if you make a mistake with my pronouns, though.
