Primary field of interest: 

Latin America

Bio: 
I am a first-year PhD student in Latin American history. My current research focuses on the experiences of indigenous peoples during and after the Argentine government’s violent annexation of Patagonia in the late 19th century. Broadly, my interests include indigenous history, spatial and environmental history, the construction of national identity, and postcolonial studies.
 
Originally from New Jersey, I graduated from Amherst College in 2014, where I received the Alfred F. Havighurst Prize in Historical Scholarship. Before coming to Yale, I spent two years teaching English in Extremadura, Spain. In addition to history, I also enjoy traveling, cooking, writing, and singing.
