I am an Assistant Professor at Princeton University, where I teach modern Latin American history. My research seeks to challenge traditional scalar and chronological frameworks, as well as to uncover the origins of the categories with which we think about the twentieth century. My work on Colombia relies on traditional methods from political and social history, as well as approaches from spatial history. I am broadly interested in using digital history to advance both analysis and narrative.
I hold an A.B. from Dartmouth College and a Ph.D. from Harvard University. At Princeton, I am a Faculty Associate at the Program in Latin American Studies and the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, and am also involved with the Center for Digital Humanities. I have received fellowships from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, Fulbright Colombia, the Eisenhower and Johnson presidential libraries, and Harvard's David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies.
