I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Howard University, and I work on topics in feminist philosophy, social philosophy, and metaphysics. 


Much of my research focuses on relationships between linguistic items in natural language (like names and predicates) and metaphysical entities (like properties and kinds) in the social domain. In this area, I am particularly interested in questions about gender and race, but I also work on more general questions about the nature of socially constructed properties and their relationship to natural language. 

I also have research interests in moral psychology, the philosophy of race, and the philosophy of trauma, and I am currently working on several projects in these areas.
