I am an assistant professor of History at University of Wisconsin-Madison. My first book, which is in progress, examines African family life in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century New England, using the rich constellation of black families in the Boston region as a lens through which to analyze race and gender in early America and the broader Atlantic world.

I completed my doctoral work in Harvard University's Department of History under the guidance of Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, Jill Lepore, Walter Johnson, Annette Gordon-Reed, and Jane Kamensky.

I earned my B.A. from Rice University, where I majored in History, English, and Policy Studies.
