I'm a doctoral student in the African American Studies Department at Northwestern University. My disciplinary focus includes English/Literature, Political Theory, and Media Studies. I love to study film, history, literature, and other adaptive strategies for sharing our stories. But I especially love helping my students and peers to explore their interests, generate ideas for research, and pursue them with the necessary tools and guidance that I hope to provide.
I received my BA (with honors) from Dartmouth College in 2016. Though I arrived to Dartmouth as an environmental engineer (I still love math!), my interests in community development and historical research methods prompted my present trajectory. I love teaching and mentoring, and believe with the right attention, interest, and adaptable teaching strategies, students can learn and grow beyond the conventional classroom setting.
