A scholar of political economy, they are working on a book about the rise of logistics as a counterrevolutionary project. Their work has been published in venues including Jacobin, Theory & Event, Environment and Planning D, and Historical Materialism.

Two timely new books unmask the colossal shipping industry behind global trade, whose monstrous pursuit of profit has long wreaked havoc on laborers and the seas they sail through.
