I am a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Sexualities Project at Northwestern (SPAN). I received my Ph.D. in History and Women's Studies from the University of Michigan in 2017, and my research focuses on the intersection of LGBTQ history and the history of the carceral state. My first book project, "Bad Queers: LGBT People and the Carceral State in Modern America,” examines the changing ways in which what I call the war on sex offenders has targeted LGBT subjects in the U.S. since World War II. My second project is a transatlantic study of the regulation of child sexuality from the Enlightenment to the present. My writing has or will appear in the Journal of the History of Sexuality, the edited collection The War on Sex, and Law & Social Inquiry.
