About Me

I’m an Assistant Professor in History at the University of Guelph, where I specialize in teaching digital history and local, oral history through experiential learning practices.

I also have a long-standing interest in early modern London, which stems from work I did with Janelle Jenstad on the Map of Early Modern London project as an undergraduate and is being resurrected through work to create linked data out of early modern research material with both Jenstad and Diane Jakacki as part of the LINCS Project.
