I am a historian of the Early Modern Atlantic World, with interests in race, religion, and memory studies. I currently teach at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester. I received a Ph.D. and an M.A. in History from the University of New Hampshire at Durham. I also received an M.A. in History and M.S. in Archives Management, and my B.A. from Simmons College in Boston. I have been the recipient of several research grants and fellowships, including from the John Hope Franklin Research Center at Duke University, the Boston Athenaeum, the Gilder-Lehrman Institute for Early American History, Mystic Seaport, and the American Studies Association, as well as a number of internal fellowships from UNH. I have also worked in a number of museums, libraries and archival repositories, and am a list editor for H-Atlantic. I am a regular contributor to the Junto: a Group Blog on Early American History. My first book, Inventing George Whitefield: Race, Revivalism, and the Making of a Religious Icon was published by the University Press of Mississippi in 2015 (paperback forthcoming: 2016)
