My interests include twentieth-century U.S. history; women's and gender history; the history of childhood; and the history of the Cold War. In particular, I explore conceptions of the family and their connection to larger political constructs during the Cold War era.
I received a doctorate in History from Yale University in 2013, where my dissertation was awarded the George Washington Egleston Historical Prize. I graduated from Barnard College in 2005 with a degree in American Studies. See below for my CV.
I am an assistant professor in the History Department at Seton Hall University. I have designed and taught courses on U.S. history, the history of the Cold War, Women's History, the history of travel and tourism in America, and the history of New York. I live in New York City with my husband, Brett, our son, Henry, and our pug, Charlie. I enjoy cooking and travel.
Please feel free to contact me with questions about my research or graduate study in history more generally.
