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 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 LGBQ people.
All of my teaching, scholarship, and activism
seeks institutional changes that can
empower communities, alleviate structural violence,
and build a more sustainable and just future.
