About Me

I received my MA and PhD from the University of Virginia. There, I completed comprehensive exams in the fields of Early Modern Britain, Early Modern Europe, the 18th Century, and the Atlantic World. My first monograph, Children at the Birth of Empire: Law, Liberty, and the Global Migration of Destitute Children, c. 1600-1760, is available through Routledge. I am currently Associate Professor of History at Vanguard University, where I teach courses in European, World, and U.S. history as well as on historical research methodologies.  I have received teaching awards from the University of Virginia and from Amnesty International. I am always happy to collaborate on projects that help bring the excitement of history to modern audiences!
