I am an Assistant Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at Wellesley College where I teach courses on gender, sexuality, race, technology, neoliberalism, and globalization.

Before arriving at Wellesley College, I was an External Faculty Fellow at Rice University and a member of the Humanities Research Center Seminar, Human Trafficking Past and Present: Crossing Borders, Crossing Disciplines. I was also a postdoctoral researcher at USC’s Annenberg Center on Communication & Leadership Policy, a Visiting Scholar in the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Northeastern University, and a Fulbright scholar affiliated with Utrecht University in the Netherlands. I received my PhD from UCLA’s Department of Gender Studies.

I have lectured widely on the laws, policies, and technologies designed to respond to human trafficking. My work has been published in Social Politics, Dialectical Anthropology, Women’s Studies International Forum, and the International Feminist Journal of Politics.
