I am a graduate student in history at the University of Iowa. My research and teaching areas include modern Europe and Latin America. I am particularly interested in diasporas, migration, nationalism, and religion.

From 2012-2013, I was a visiting fellow at the Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies at the Freie Universität Berlin. Before that, I was a Crossing Borders Fellow at the University of Iowa and taught a number of self-designed courses on European and transatlantic history. From 2014-2015, I will hold a University of Iowa Ballard and Seashore Dissertation Year Fellowship and finish writing my dissertation.
