About Me


Photo Credit: Lauren Shay Lavin

I am a historian of American religion and modern Judaism, specializing in the nineteenth century. My work focuses on religion in everyday life, particularly its interactions and intersections with space, gender, law, the state, and economics.

I grew up in Shorewood, Wisconsin, and Marietta, Georgia, and received a B.A. in religion (summa cum laude with distinction, minor in history) from Boston University. I received my PhD in religious studies from Yale University in 2015.
