Lecturer and History Education Program Leader

History is a living thing; less a series of names, dates, places, and things. Rather, it is how all of these various factors interacted that creates a cohesive and compelling narrative. I believe that it is imperative for us as global citizens to know and be able to utilize historical narratives as a resource for understanding and improving our world. Therefore, I strive to challenge my students through presenting complicated historical narratives and interpretations. By doing so, I hope to cultivate the critical reading, writing, and analytical skills that the modern world demands.

I am pleased to offer courses on U.S. History. My research interests include: U.S. diplomatic history, Latin American history, the twentieth century, and economic history.
