About Me


I am currently a postdoctoral Prize Fellow in Economics, History, and Politics at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (website here). I received a BA in History and English from Williams College in 2007, where my senior thesis examined tenth-century Anglo-Saxon kingship. I received a MPhil in Medieval History from Cambridge University in 2008, where I wrote my masters thesis on a ninth-century Carolingian manuscript under the supervision of Rosamond McKitterick. My 2016 PhD dissertation, "The Crowd in the Early Middle Ages, c. 500 - c. 1000," advised by Michael McCormick, examined collective behaviors and representations in Western Europe and the Mediterranean between the end of Antiquity and the beginning of the Middle Ages.
