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, "Punishing Queer Sexuality in the Age of LGBT Rights," examines the changing ways in which the branch of the carceral state concerned with controlling sex crimes has targeted LGBTQ 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, in the edited collection The War on Sex, and Law & Social Inquiry.
