Welcome! I am a historian of the early modern Spanish Atlantic with a particular focus on issues of political economy, political culture, and imperial governance. More broadly, my research interests include the history of early modern capitalism and imperialism, slavery and the Atlantic world, the information state, and the Age of Revolutions.
At present, I am Assistant Professor of History at Queens College of the City University of New York (CUNY). I previously held an Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Center for Global History of the Freie Universität Berlin and a Provost's Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Chicago.
More recently, my work has been supported by the Trierer Kolleg für Mittelalter und Neuzeit at the Universität Trier and the Institute for Citizens & Scholars. I earned a Ph.D. in history from Princeton University (2016), a B.A. from The City College of New York (2011), and an A.A. from LaGuardia Community College (2008).
