I am a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard University in the History Department with a secondary field in the studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality. I study comparative slavery, race formation, and informal European empires in Tunis in the 18th and 19th centuries.
I hold an M.A. in History from Harvard University, and a B.A. in History and Middle Eastern Studies from Tufts University (summa cum laude, 2013). Prior to entering the graduate program, I received a Fulbright grant to teach in Turkey, and taught Kindergarten and First Grade, all subjects, in New Orleans, Louisiana through Americorps. I also worked with youth and adult English-language learners in Hong Kong.
