Welcome. I'm a fellow in the Princeton Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities and an assistant professor of Latin American history at the University of Scranton. I study Latin American cities at the turn of the twentieth century. My research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of the histories of cities, gender, race, and cultural production. I'm also excited by the practice and theory of digital approaches to these topics.

My current book project, which began as a prize-winning dissertation at the University of Chicago, examines São Paulo's theaters to explain how an urban public was imagined and created in a rapidly growing city. To learn more about this and other projects, please take a look at my research page. I've also posted some of my research discoveries on the site's blog, which additionally includes teaching tips. A list of the courses I've taught, along with a few syllabi, can be found on the teaching page.
