Current CV:


Current Research:  I collaborate with the leaders and youth participants of an organization based in Baltimore to better understand the legacies and contemporary practices of radical education and its intersection with international travel. In this project, and in my analysis of fictional texts, I consider speculative geographies of the future from the perspective of Black and other marginalized creatives. For this latter work, I collaborate with interdisciplinary scholars in the arts and in corporate spaces to consider how diverse speculative fiction might inform the development of emerging technologies.
