I am a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard University, focusing on the social and legal history of early modern England and early America. The working title for my dissertation is "Captured Consent: Bound Service and Freedom of Contract in Early Modern England and English America." My research has been supported by the American Historical Association, the Huntington Library, the North American Conference on British Studies, the John Carter Brown Library, and at Harvard by the University Traveling Fellowships (Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship), the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, the John Clive Fellowship, and the Joint Center for History and Economics and Institute for New Economic Thinking. In 2018-2019 I will be a Mellon-ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellow with an affiliation at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies.
Before entering the Ph.D. program, I graduated summa cum laude from Columbia University with a B.A. in history in 2009. I then joined the Academic and Trade Department at Oxford University Press, where I worked first as an editorial assistant, and ultimately as an acquiring editor on the history list.
