I grew up in Washington, D.C., and in 2018 received a B.A. with University Honors from Wesleyan University, where I was the only student to receive High Honors in three departments. I’ve lived in Hamburg, Germany, twice: as a visiting student in at the Universität Hamburg in 2016 and for archival research in 2021-22. I (briefly) played varsity soccer in college and would follow Manchester United home and away if it didn’t require transatlantic flights.

I'm currently finishing my PhD dissertation, "Shaping an Interconnected World: Hamburg, Germany, and the Transformation of Interdependence, 1880-1974." Research from the project has appeared in Central European History and is forthcoming in German History

In May 2020, I completed my general exams with a major field in German History since 1770 with Harold James and Yair Mintzker, and minor fields in Empires and Internationalisms with Natasha Wheatley and Latin America since 1800 with Jeremy Adelman. Since then, I’ve taught courses in modern European history, the history of capitalism, and global history since 1300, the latter in conjunction with Princeton’s Global History Lab. I have also been President of Princeton’s Graduate History Association (twice), have sat on the department’s Graduate Policy Committee, have helped design graduate student professional development programming, and have helped consult on higher education administration for the Open Society Foundations. Most importantly, I am President of Princeton’s graduate and faculty soccer club, Grad FC.
