I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of History at Ohio State University and faculty member of TDA@Ohio State. I graduated with my Ph.D. in History from the University of California, Irvine in 2014. My research interests include the cultural history of the Enlightenment,  communication networks in world history, the history of the French Revolution, and digital humanities. My work has been supported by grants and fellowships from the Fulbright, the Princeton University Council on the Humanities, the American Association of University Women, P.E.O. (Philanthropic Education Organization), the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Council for European Studies, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
