I am a Doctoral Candidate in Disability Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). My research interests include disability theory, social psychology, citizenship theory, employment, social justice and human rights.
I have been the Project Coordinator on Participation Through Innovation (PTI), research looking at the experiences of social entrepreneurs with disabilities. My dissertation research is looking at social entrepreneurs with intellectual disabilities.
