I received my PhD in U.S. History in 2019 from Binghamton University, where I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor for the 2020-21 academic year in the History Department. My teaching covers both U.S. and Russian history as well as women, gender, and sexuality.
My research examines the portrayal of Russian terrorist women in the United States at the turn of the century which raises important questions about the intersection of gender, violence, and politics. I am particularly interested in the significations of women’s violence and how this came to influence the U.S.-Russian relationship.
I’m a proud member of the Society for Historians of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era and currently serve as the Editor-in-Chief of H-SHGAPE and the co-editor of the SHGAPE Blog.
In my free time, I volunteer at the Phelps Mansion Museum, a Gilded Age historic house museum located in downtown Binghamton. I have served on the Board of Trustees there for almost three years, and recently became its Treasurer. You can read more about my public history experience here.
