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 and a founding member of Duke’s Working Group in Slavery, War. Based primarily in the Department of History, I am also pursuing Certificates in Feminist Studies and Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Please see the Research tab for more information about my work.

I am an alumna of the University of Toronto, where I majored in History and double-minored in Sociology and Caribbean Studies, graduating with a B.A. with High Distinction.

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.
