I am currently a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Liberal Arts in the Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching at Macalester College. My research chronology focuses on the long 19th century, particularly the North American and Indigenous West. I received my M.A. in Native American Studies from Montana State University (2009) and my PhD in History from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (2015). I also hold certificates in Digital Humanities and Great Plains Studies.
