I am a PhD candidate in the Department of History at the University of Connecticut.

Profile PhotoI study the history of the United States and the world, broadly conceived. In my research and teaching, I explore the intertwined histories of US empire, world capitalism, and the global environment.

In particular, I am interested in how the exercise of US power abroad has relied in part on managing human interactions with the environment. I am also interested in how those interactions became a site of social struggle for individuals and groups within and beyond the United States.
