Additional Info:

  • Bio: I am a historian of modern North Africa and Europe, focusing on the intersections among environment, colonialism, and technology. My current book project, expanding on my doctoral dissertation, examines French efforts to remake the urban and rural environments of its North African colonies through the implementation of large-scale development projects. As a historian with many years of secondary teaching experience in both public and private school settings, I teach courses and oversee candidates in the department's social studies teacher preparation program. I'm also happy to work with students on projects related to environmental history, colonialism, or the Mediterranean World.
