Academic Interests:
Early America; Early U.S. Republic; American Revolution; Atlantic World; history of childhood; crime and punishment in the antebellum United States.

My research focuses on the emergence of imprisonment as a form of punishment in the United States and on the nation's first prisoners.  I am beginning a new project that analyzes attempts to confine and reform wayward children in the early United States.

Traveling, reading, golf.
