I am a Ph.D. candidate in the History of American Civilization program in the Department of History at the University of Delaware, and I am pursuing a career in public history and academia. I study eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American cultural and social history.

My dissertation,‚ÄúNavigating the World: The Material Culture of Physical Mobility Impairment in the Early American North, 1700-1861,” is about material culture and disability in early America.

The photo at the top of the site was taken at the Upper Bay Museum in North East, Maryland, during a two-week museum project I took part in with the Museum Studies program at the University of Delaware. In the photo, I am cataloguing a twentieth-century worktable used by a decoy carver from the Upper Chesapeake. Learn more here.
