About Me

I am an assistant professor of history at Xavier University and a specialist on slavery and colonialism in the early modern Atlantic world, especially the British Caribbean.  My first book, Surviving Slavery in the British Caribbean, was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press.  My work has also appeared in the William and Mary QuarterlySlavery & Abolition, and the New West Indian Guide.  At Xavier, I teach courses in Atlantic and American history, including introductory courses on the history of the African Diaspora and the memory of slavery as well as upper-level courses on the transatlantic slave trade, colonial America, and Caribbean history.
