Research Interests
I am a PhD candidate interested in historical sociology, Marxism and critical theory, and Indonesia/Southeast Asia. My dissertation work develops a non-Eurocentric conception of the Indonesian revolution using the theory of ‘uneven and combined┬ádevelopment’. I am interested in radical pedagogy and have taught courses on international relations, political theory, non-western politics, and Asian philosophy. In my free time I enjoy making music!
Research interests: revolution, imperialism , nationalism, political Islam, Indonesia/Southeast Asia, Marxism and critical theory.
