I am the Political Science Program Coordinator, Fulbright Liaison, Pre-Law Advisor, and an assistant professor of political science in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Newberry College. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with graduate specializations in Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs (Ph.D.) and Women’s and Gender Studies (M.A.). My research examines transitional justice, feminist care ethics, human rights, women’s rights, international law, ethnicized/racialized violence, African philosophy, and civic engagement.
