Bio and Contact

I am a Fellow at the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History at Harvard University. 

My book, to be published with University of California Press, is currently titled Policing Revolution: Cold War Counterinsurgency at Home and Abroad. My research interests cluster around a few domains: security, policing, and counterinsurgency; the entwinement of foreign and domestic policy; and urbanization. My broad theoretical and methodological agenda is to connect these domains through a critical analysis of race and racism. 

During my graduate studies, I received grants and fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, the Social Science Research Council, the Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation, the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, Vassar College, and other competitive sources. 

At Harvard, I have taught The History of Policing in the United States and Gangsters, Spies, and Revolutionaries: The Underside of US Empire. At NYU, I taught Approaches to Gender & Sexuality Studies, Approaches to Metropolitan Studies, and Concepts in Social & Cultural Analysis.

My writing has appeared in American QuarterlyCitiesCity, Journal of Urban History, Harvard Design Magazine, HumanityNACLA Report on the Americas, Jacobin, The Brooklyn Rail, and elsewhere. I also edit an online music magazine.
