My research interests consist of the history of religion, slavery, and the moral economy of nineteenth-century America. I specifically focus on tensions within reform communities before the American Civil War, particularly abolitionism and connections to broader evangelical thought. My aim is to investigate the range of reformer’s religious beliefs and the effects religious beliefs had on the broader political and social debates during the sectional crisis.
Aside from historical inquiry, I enjoy a range of outdoor activities consisting of dirt biking, skateboarding, rock climbing, and running. I also enjoy the simple things available every day, whether that be having a conversation with a friend over a cup of coffee or sharing a meal with family.
