The African American experience spans four centuries, from the initial settlement of North America by Europeans and the establishment of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, to the present day. This interdisciplinary course examines the social thought, cultural mores, religious institutions, intellectual history, political challenges, literary traditions and expressive arts of people of African descent in the Americas.

I am an assistant professor in the Management of Complex Systems Department and the Ernest and Julio Gallo Management Program at the University of California Merced. Before joining UC Merced, I was at the IMT Institute for Advance Studies Lucca (Italy), and prior to that, I spent my doctoral years at Boston University where I received a PhD in Physics (2011), advised by H. E. Stanley.
