Research Interests

My research centers on 20th century American religious history, culture, and evangelicalism. I am especially interested in interfaith relations between evangelicals and minority faiths within the broader religious landscape of America during the early Cold War.

Other Information

In addition to my academic interests, I appreciate elements of hip-hop culture, especially dance and vocal percussion.
