I am a historian with a Ph.D. in history from American University. I have extensive experience as an educator, researcher, and writer. My areas of expertise include European history and United States history and my thematic specialties include gender and women’s history, politics, and United States constitutional culture.

My research has achieved recognition through several awards and grants, including the Dirksen Center Congressional Research Grant, American University's Vice Provost Doctoral Research Award, and a Clendenen Dissertation Fellowship at American University.

My book, Gendered Citizenship  is available now from The University of Nebraska Press. My book explores the contours of women’s civic standing in the post-suffrage era through an examination of the competing civic ideologies embedded in the conflict over the Equal Rights Amendment from 1920 to 1963.
