I am currently an American Council for Learned Societies (ACLS) New Faculty Fellow in the Department of Political Science at the Johns Hopkins University. My research examines the university as a site of world politics and, using critical and constructivist approaches, argues that the material transformations of post-Cold War higher education in the U.S. and Africa inform how the world comes to be imagined as “global.” I am currently working on my first book, “Producing Knowledge: Universities and the Politics of World-Making.”

Prior to Johns Hopkins, I was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for the Humanities at Wesleyan University. My scholarly work has appeared in Third World Quarterly, The British Journal of Political and International Relations, International Political Sociology, Polygraph, Transitions, and the Journal of Higher Education in Africa. I received my Ph.D. from the department of Political Science at the University of Minnesota in 2010.
