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 Roman law of slavery in late medieval Europe. 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 conduct 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 projects, I broadcast classical music on WHRB (of which I am past president), volunteer for the Small Claims Advisory Service, and am trying to learn to play the organ and viola da gamba. 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.
