I am a PhD student in the Duke University Department of History whose research interests lie in the Anglophone and Francophone Caribbean, with a particular emphasis on women and gender both during slavery and in the post-emancipation era. I am a James B. Duke fellow, a 2018-19 Mellon Humanities Unbounded MicroWorlds Lab Fellow, and a founding member of Duke’s Working Group in Slavery, War, and Gender, convened by Professor Thavolia Glymph. Please see the Research tab for more information about my work.
Born and raised in New York City, I now call Durham, North Carolina home. I have been a member of the community organization Good Old Lower East Side since I was seventeen and am actively involved in the North Carolina labor movement through my participation in the Durham Workers Assembly.
