I’m thrilled (and not a little bit in awe) to say that in the fall I will be joining the Department of Politics at Princeton. In the 2012-2013 academic year I’ll be there with a post-doctoral fellowship and, in the fall of 2013, I’ll begin teaching as an Asst. Professor.


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics at Princeton. I received a PhD in African American Studies, an MA in Government and an MA in Statistics from Harvard University. Previously, I co-founded and the Brooklyn Excelsior Charter School. I can be reached at owasow -at- gmail -dot- com.
