I'm a historian and writer; my work centers on the history of the modern human sciences and political economy.
I received my PhD in History of Science and Medicine from Yale and will be Lecturer in the Department of the History of Science at Harvard University from Fall 2023. Previously, I was Visiting Research Scholar at Duke University's Center for the History of Political Economy in 2022–23.
I am a Contributing Editor to the Boston Review and an Editor at the History of Anthropology Review. I've also written about issues relating to my work for publications such as n+1, New Inquiry, and New Labor Forum.
