Research interests: 

I am primarily interested in understanding how socialization processes shapes people's understandings of the political and of how power works within the social world. By focusing on the repertoires that people use in order to make sense of everyday life, I argue that we can develop a more robust account of people's political imaginations, of the possibilities and horizons that these imaginations provide, and thinking through how they may challenge more authoritative accounts of power and the political.
