Welcome. I'm 
an assistant professor of History, Latin American Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies at the University of Scranton. During the 2018-2019 academic year, I was a fellow in the Princeton Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities. 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, explains how residents in the city of São Paulo used theaters to understand and shape their rapidly changing society. 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.
