I teach in the Department of Philosophy at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, IL. My academic research focuses on equality — what it is, why it’s valuable, and what exactly it requires us to do in practice. I am especially interested in how the demand for equality arises with respect to race, class and gender. This focus is reflected in my recent paper “Gentrification as Injustice” in the January 2017 issue of Public Affairs Quarterly. I also write on philosophical and political topics for non-academic publications such as The Los Angeles Review of BooksIn These Times and Jacobin. Some of my writing was recently mentioned in the New York Times. See my bio for more information.
