My theoretical work draws liberally from the Black radical tradition, contemporary philosophy of language, contemporary social science, German transcendental philosophy, materialist thought, histories of activism and activist thinkers. I am currently writing a book entitled Reconsidering Reparations that considers a "constructive" philosophical argument for reparations and explores links with environmental justice. I also write public philosophy, including articles exploring intersections of climate justice and colonialism.
