I research and write on the topics of racism and neoliberalism, embodiment and citizenship, and urban development in the rust belt. My focus is on how simple racial binaries like black/white are no longer sufficient to explain racism's persistence and causal impact. My work focuses on how elites use instances of racial integration to activate a language of neoliberalism in order to garner broader white support for austerity, privatization, tax cuts, and to deregulate various regulatory fields.


I was a white kid who grew up in a predominantly black neighborhood during the height of deindustrialization in Buffalo, New York. It was one of the poorest neighborhoods in one of the poorest cities in the United States. Everyday life taught me about racism. Sociology taught me how racism was connected to where we live, where we go to school, where we work, and the kinds of jobs available and unavailable people.
