My research focuses on forms of inequality, nursing, public health, development, gender, race, labor, and labor markets/informal economies.
One of my current projects uses interview-based field research with over 70 nurses to examine the demand for paid and unpaid care work and the impacts on nurses in a public hospital in Johannesburg.
I completed my PhD in Economics at the University of Massachusetts in 2012. I am now an Assistant Professor of Global and Intercultural Studies at Miami University of Ohio and hold a joint appointment for research with Ezintsha, in the Wits Reproductive Health and HIV Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand.
I recently co-founded an organization for people interested in Feminist Radical Political Economy (FRPE)
