About Me

I am an assistant professor of Modern European History at Lafayette College, PA. I am currently at work on a book that examines the role of prostitution policing in upholding white dominance in the century following the abolition of slavery in imperial France. My work spans across three continents, where I look at the articulation of prostitution and racial policing in Martinique, colonial Senegal, and  France.
