Welcome to my personal website!

I am a cultural historian with an emphasis on East German history and culture. I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2020. My dissertation discusses the everyday life experiences of East Germans in Mozambique during the 1980s. My research combines visual culture, anthropology, gender studies, and postcolonial theories to discuss international solidarity efforts abroad. I joined the German Program at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the fall of 2020.
