I am a PhD candidate working under the direction of Dr. Lori Ginzberg in the dual-title PhD program with the Departments of History and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. My research focuses on constructions and discourses of gender, sexuality, and respectability in the United States during the nineteenth century. As a member of two departments, I'm also interested in interdisciplinary approaches to research as well as the application of theory to historical analysis.

Research Interests:

US 19th Century, Gender, Sexuality, Respectability
