I study modern European history, with a focus on nineteenth- and twentieth-century France. At the broadest level, I am interested in the social and spatial history of ideas. My work examines the reciprocal relationship between thought and place, tracing the actions through which ideas are, literally, concretized. I am particularly committed to incorporating groups often excluded from intellectual history, like grassroots social movements. I am also interested in the history of historical thinking, especially that of the early Annales School.
Prior to Penn, I attended the University of Chicago, where I earned an A.B. with honors in History and a minor in Philosophy.
I have previously served as co-president of Clio, the history department's graduate student organization and as co-organizer of the department's Graduate Colloquium, a biweekly forum for graduate students to workshop articles, dissertation chapters, and conference papers.
