I am currently a PhD student in early American history at Yale University. I graduated summa cum laude and received my B.A. with Honors in History from The City University of New York via The City College of New York and the CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies program.
My primary field is early American history, primarily eighteenth-century political culture and intellectual history. I am especially interested in the later colonial period and the coming of the American Revolution in the middle colonies, primarily New York. I am also interested in the Enlightenment, print culture, and history of the book, and the history of New York City.
I also write about the intersections between the eighteenth century and our current political culture. I am a Contributing Editor of “The Junto: A Group Blog on Early American History" and have contributed to “Publick Occurrences 2.0” at Common-place and wrote a piece on historians and social media for “The Readex Report," Readex’s quarterly publication and blog, which was one of four pieces of mine that have been included in the AHA’s weekly “What We’re Reading" in the last year. I am both a contributor and the producer of “The JuntoCast," a monthly podcast about early American history, academia, pedagogy, and public history. I am also currently a Research Assistant at the Papers of Benjamin Franklin at Yale University.
