A Ph.D. candidate in History at Harvard University, my research centers on the global history of capitalism, labor, and human migrations. I also serve as a Graduate Student Associate at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, was a visiting fellow at the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam in the fall of 2012, and am currently the history advisor to the Quincy Undergraduate House. I am currently at work on a dissertation, directed by Sven Beckert, Lizabeth Cohen, and James Kloppenberg, entitled Crisis Capital: The Making and Un-Making of Industrial Massachusetts, 1873-Present (abstract), in which I explore the industrialization and de-industrialization of the Massachusetts seaboard through an analysis of the changing global geographies and shifting power relations of mobile capital, migrant labor, and the state apparatus. As an undergraduate, I studied with Chris Friday, A. Ricardo Lopez, George Mariz, and Johann Neem at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, receiving my B.A. in 2010.
