Overview

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Cornell History Department and the Cornell Society of Fellows. I received my PhD in American Studies from Harvard University in 2020. I teach and write about the history of the United States in the twentieth century. My current research is on the history of meritocracy, with a focus on Silicon Valley.
