I received my PhD in U.S. History in 2019 from Binghamton University, where I am currently a Lecturer for the 2021-22 academic year in the History Department. My teaching covers both U.S. and Russian history as well as women, gender, and sexuality. In Spring 2022, I also became Interim Director of the Binghamton Codes! Program and am currently teaching Python to humanities students.

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. As of Summer 2021, I am also now an editor of the history blog Nursing Clio.

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.
