As a Professor of Political Science and Director of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at Temple University, I teach courses on anti-discrimination law, democratic political theory, and the politics of race, gender, and sexuality.

As a scholar, my research and publications probe the complex relationship between individual and collective identity in administrative policies and anti-discrimination law.

As an activist, I collaborate with and advocate for marginalized communities including trans and gender nonconforming people, women, people of color, and LGBQIA+ people.

As a consultant, I work with companies and organizations to help them them imagine, design and achieve their diversity and inclusion goals.

All of my teaching, scholarship, activism, and consulting seeks institutional changes that can empower individuals and communities to build a more just and equitable future.
