I am currently working as a project manager with a development NGO, ADRA Sudan, based in Khartoum and supporting projects in White Nile, Blue Nile, and West Darfour. I was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Peace and Justice Studies Program at Wellesley College, and a Fulbright Scholar to Burma/Myanmar. I have taught courses in the Department of International Relations at the University of Southern California (where I earned my PhD in 2012), in the Honors Program at UCLA, in the Peace and Justice Studies Program at Wellesley College, and in the Peace Studies Program at Chapman University. I am the author of several books, including Humanism and the Death of God: Searching for the Good After Darwin, Marx, and Nietzsche (Oxford University Press, 2017). The chicken is my wingman.
