I am a historian of the United States, with interests in law, cultural history, and the history of capitalism. My current research considers how Americans debated the moral boundaries of the financial economy in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

My work has been supported by the Charlotte W. Newcombe Fellowship, the John E. Rovensky Fellowship, the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice at Brown University, and other institutions. Articles and essays drawn from my research have appeared in the Journal of American History, the Journal of Cultural EconomyHistory of the Present, and other publications.

At present, I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Baldy Center for Law and Social Policy, State University of New York at Buffalo.
