Research Interests

My dissertation is entitled: “Panic and Power: The First Great Depression in North Carolina, 1819-1833.” It explores the political, economic and social consequences of the first major financial collapse in American history—the Panic of 1819—through the lens of one critical yet understudied Southern state.
