ᎣᏏᏲ,

I am a historian, digital humanist, and writer interested in understanding—and helping others understand—the complex history of the Americas.

I am the Assistant Director for Digital Engagement and Discovery at the John Carter Brown Library, where I oversee the library's digital initiatives. Previously, I worked at the Harvard University Archives, focusing on the Colonial North America Project and historical exhibitions.

I received my PhD in American history from Harvard University in 2016, after completing a dissertation that took a close look at a drought and famine that occured in Kansas in 1860.

Currently based in Providence, Rhode Island, I'm originally from northeastern Oklahoma and I am an enrolled citizen of the ᏣᎳᎩᎯ ᎠᏰᎵ (Cherokee Nation).
