I’m a Ph.D. candidate in the History of American Civilization Program in the Department of History at the University of Delaware. I’m researching a dissertation about how Americans communicated about warfare and what made combat an “incommunicable experience” between the Revolutionary War and World War One. Meanwhile, I work as the Gallery Interpretation Manager at the Museum of the American Revolution (Philadelphia, PA).

In current and past projects, I’ve drawn from material culture studies, living history and experimental archaeology, military and maritime history, and historical archaeology. I write with a broad public audience in mind.
