I am a PhD candidate at the University of Virginia Corcoran Department of History, focusing on 20th Century United States History. My areas of interest include gender and family studies, urban environment, suburbanization, and public policy. My dissertation examines the intersection of these topics in post-WWI America and the promotion of the idealized suburban home as a curative for a diverse array of social ills. Currently, the dissertation is titled The Domestic Standard: Building the Modern American Family in Suburbia After WWI. I am engaged in promoting and developing digital history projects that utilize emerging technologies to assess and present historical subjects in innovative new ways. Additionally, I work as an instructional technologist and web developer for the Corcoran Department of history, in my role as Director of the Project for Technology in History Education.
I head Digital Collections at the University of Virginia's Law Library.
