I am a fifth-year Ph.D. Candidate in History at Harvard University and I study religion and modern American politics.  I am currently writing a dissertation entitled The Politics of Conscience: Religious Activism and Social Change in Postwar America, in which I explore the history of the religious left from the end of World War II to the Carter Presidency.  I am also engaged in several related paper projects, including research on clerical support for abortion rights, the Cold War origins of religious student activism, and the role of religious institutions in the War on Poverty.  As an undergraduate at Brown University, I completed my A.B. with Honors in History in 2008.
