I will be joining the UCSB History Department in the Fall 2019 Quarter
I am a Ph.D. student working at the intersections of nature, culture, science, and technology with a particular focus on Cold War-era United States history. Generally speaking, my research examines the entanglement of environmental perceptions and space exploration, analyzing scientific knowledge and popular notions about environments on Earth and in outer space.
I also study public history, focusing on theories and methods such as memory and narrative, space and place, oral history, and material culture. While these are not all unique to the field of history, their use by historians helps guide my research. Above all, I believe public history makes my work more accessible to broader audiences while remaining academically rigorous.

Feel free to follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook where I try to interact with as much educational and professional content as I do hobby and personal interest content. I’m not promising I’m very good at being a Twitter-/Insta-/FB-storian yet, but I’m learning!
