I received my PhD in 2018 from the University of Illinois at Chicago.  I studied Modern British History with minor fields in World History, Science and Technology Studies, and the Philosophy of Teaching History.

Prior to that I completed an MA at Eastern Illinois University in Modern European History with a minor in American Intellectual History.

I also studied voice (BM) and history (BA) at Illinois Wesleyan University.

In my free time I like to run, cook, wander in the forest, write fiction and creative non-fiction, and watch anime.

I use ‘they/them’ pronouns and would ask that you respect that, even if you’re just gossiping about me to your neighbor over tea.
