I am a senior in Currier House, studying History with a secondary in Government. My research interests lie in the areas of medieval Europe and legal history. I am now writing a thesis on the reception of the Roman law of slavery in the late medieval courts. I am also assembling a sample of English household inventories for The Documentary Archaeology of Late Medieval Europe, a digital collection of sources of material culture.
Other interests include the history of political thought, art history, and all things American politics. I run simulation analyses of legislative redistricting at the Algorithm-Assisted Redistricting Methodology Project. As a peer adviser for the History Department, I am always delighted to entice more undergraduates to the marvelous study of the past.
Outside of academic work, I broadcast classical music on WHRB, of which I am currently president, and volunteer for the Small Claims Advisory Service. Beyond campus, I have most recently worked as an intern in the office of the immediate past Attorney General of Virginia.
After immigrating to the United States at the age of five, I lived for some years near the Twin Cities in the greatest state in the Union. My permanent address is now in Northern Virginia. In my spare time, I like to read, play the piano, watch whodunits, and make Chinese food and pasta.
