About Me

My research brings together indigenous, legal, and cartographic histories to study land tenure regimes across contested indigenous territories in eighteenth and nineteenth century North America. My book project compares the conditions of possibility created by imperial sovereignty transitions for indigenous proprietors in Quebec, Louisiana, and California. I am broadly interested in the history of cartography, the Atlantic and Pacific worlds, Borderlands, Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS), and Science and Technology Studies.
