About Me

I am a Doctoral candidate at the University of Connecticut. I work on 19th and 20th century Italy, and teach on Europe more broadly in those time periods. My dissertation looks at merchant Adriano Lemmi to explore questions related to finance and the Italian Risorgimento.  I am concerned with how revolutionary action was paid for and pay particular attention to the costs associated with guns and ships, as well as the basic necessities of those fighting, including food and clothing.
