About Me

I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of History at Colgate University. In 2019, I defended my dissertation “Down and Out in the USA: General Relief and the Politics of Precarity in the Shadow of the Welfare State, 1935-1964,” with distinction.

By bringing the political history of the welfare state into conversation with the social history of economic insecurity, my dissertation makes a transformative contribution to our understanding of American politics, the state, and the political economy of inequality.

I have research interests in American Political History, Policy and Social Welfare History, History of Women and Gender, History of Capitalism and Work, and Legal History.
