I am an historian of twentieth-century women’s and gender history with research interests that revolve around transnational social movements, intersectionality, and human rights. I graduated with a PhD in history from the State University of New York at Binghamton. I am an Associate Professor at the University of Rhode Island in the history and gender and women’s studies departments where I teach on a variety of topics including environmental justice, transnational social movements, and human rights. I believe that as a scholar I have a duty to act as a resource for the communities in which I live by bringing relevant evidence and fact-based analysis to public conversations and by using my skills as a historian to work toward social justice. On this website, I have provided information on my research, public engagement, and teaching interests.
My book Women’s Antiwar Diplomacy during the Viet Nam War Era is now available!
