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, Coercion, and Free Will in the Early Modern English World." My research has been supported by the American Historical Association, the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Huntington Library, the NACBS, and at Harvard by the University Traveling Fellowships (Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship), the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, the Clive Fellowship, and the Joint Center for History and Economics and Institute for New Economic Thinking. I was a visiting student at Cambridge University for the 2016-2017 academic year.
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.
