About Me:

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Riverside City College. My work intersects Political Theory and International Relations. As a Development Theorist more specifically, I am especially concerned with development ethics. My dissertation, " Justifying Development Aid: Capabilities and Communicative Freedom" uses Amartya Sen's "Capabilities Approach" and Jurgen Habermas's "Communicative Freedom" to formulate a new set of normative standards for development practicioners. Current and past research projects also include: Climate Change in East Africa, UN Sustainable Development Goals, International Political Economy of Finance in West Africa, Water, and Feminism.
