I am a Lecturer in the History & Literature program at Harvard University. From 2016 to 2018, I was a Global American Studies Postdoctoral Fellow at the Charles Warren Center. At Harvard, I've taught courses in twentieth-century Native American and First Nations History and Native American & Indigenous Studies. My writing has been published in the journal History & Theory, and I'm currently revising my book manuscript, Akwesasne: Settler Colonialism and Everyday Life on the Northern Border. In my book and broader research interests, I explore the relationship between modern policing practices, settler colonialism, and Indigenous sovereignty in the US and Canada.
I received my PhD in US/Native American History since 1865 from Indiana University.
