About Me

I earned a PhD in history from Binghamton University with specializations in the United States, women and gender, race, and colonialism/empire. I am especially passionate about historical and contemporary issues related to social movements and protest, food and consumerism, gender norms, race and immigration, and LGBTQIA+ and women’s rights. I strive to explore and advocate for these subjects through teaching, research, publishing, digital history, public service, and political activism.
