Research Interests

Interested broadly in the global, transnational, and entangled dimensions of American religion in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, I am exploring questions at the intersection of religious and immigration histories, specifically Protestant and Jewish. Particular interests lie in the transatlantic exchange of theologies, ideas, and scholarship; interreligious and interdenominational networks and conflict; the confluence of religion and national identity; modernism/fundamentalism; and gendered experiences in foreign missions.

My educational background is in history, Jewish studies, and political science. Prior to beginning doctoral studies, I worked in academic publishing for seven years, most of that time as an acquisitions editor in religious studies.
