About Me

I am a PhD Candidate in American History at the University of Cambridge. I am interested in the politics of consumer activism, material culture, and citizenship in the early America. My thesis is entitled “‘Voting’ Consumers and Cultures of Consumer Activism, 1776-1815.” A firm believer in the importance of engaging with the public as academics, I have completed internships in museum, curatorial, archival, and historic preservation with Colonial Williamsburg, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, and the National Park Service’s Park History/Maritime Heritage and National Historic Landmark Programs. I received my MPhil in American History from Cambridge and my BA in History with a NIAHD Certificate in Early American History, Material Culture, and Museum Studies from the College of William & Mary.
