I am a historian of early America who specializes in digital history and public history. I earned my PhD from George Mason University in 2023. Currently, I’m a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University and co-editor of Current Research in Digital History. I’ve recently worked at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media as a Digital History Fellow and a graduate research assistant. At RRCHNM, I was the project manager for American Religious Ecologies, and a key team member for Mapping Early American Elections, DataScribe, Mapping the University, and For Us the Living. I also teach introductory digital humanities courses like The Digital Past.
My research interests include early America, slavery, the eighteenth-century Chesapeake, spatial history, digital history, and public history. My dissertation, “Potomac Networks: Waterways, Commerce, and Enslavement in the George Mason Family, 1700–1828,” presents a new approach to the Mason family by employing digital analysis and visualizations, and focusing on waterways, aquatic business ventures and local connections.
