About Me

I am a historian of energy, work, and politics in the modern United States and the world. Currently, I am working on my first book, which traces the emergence of energy citizenship—a form of national belonging defined by the rights and obligations of energy production, distribution, and consumption—from the coal mining workplace in the post-1945 United States. My research has appeared in Labor: Studies in Working-Class History of the Americas, the Journal of Energy History/ Revue d’Histoire de l’Énergie, and American Quarterly. I have also written for a range of public outlets, including Jacobin, Bitch, In These Times, and more.
