I am an assistant professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My first book examines African family life in the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Boston area, using the seaport’s rich constellation of black families 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 History Department 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.
