About Me

My first book, The Many Panics of 1837: People, Politics, and the Creation of a Transatlantic Financial Crisis (Cambridge, 2013), was a co-winner of the James H. Broussard Best First Book Prize from the Society for Historians of the Early American Republic. I am currently writing a book on attempts to build a transoceanic canal across Lake Nicaragua in the 1820s. Teaching animal history is a “pet” project.
