Research Interests:
My research interests are race and ethnicity and Jewishness, with specific focus on racialization and identity. For my dissertation, I seek to examine shifting etho-racial identities for white and non-white “Jews by Choice” (those who convert to Judaism). My other research has looked at racializations of Jewishness in the media, racist ideologies in Netflix series, and racial microaggressions.
