As an historian, I have focused my research on the multi-cultural political environment in the 18th-century trans-Appalachian West. Specifically, I am interested in uncovering the political voices of 18th-century Native Americans as they negotiated their places within expanding North American empires. I received the Lehigh College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Master's Thesis Award in 2015. I currently teach Native American Cultures at Messiah College.
