Biographical Sketch


Born and raised in Los Angeles, I earned my BA and MA in European History from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. My research interests focused on gender, empire, and witchcraft, with particular emphasis on how masculinities shaped political and social life in early modern England. My fields include Early Modern Europe and the Atlantic World.
