Drawing on literature in political sociology, citizenship theory, and racial and ethnic relations, I work to understand and explain the ways in which we construct belonging and exclusion in a

newly market-driven world. 

I examine the methods employed by the state to discourage rebellion, and speak to the nature of movements that resist. 

By looking at phenomena as diverse as radical separatist movements, human trafficking, and incarceration, my work investigates the changing character of the state and the citizen.
