I earned my Ph.D. from Lehigh in '08 writing a dissertation entitled "A Veritable…Arsenal” of Manufacturing.  After graduating, I was hired as Assistant Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences at Northampton Community College. While at Lehigh I had an academic scholarship and earned the Joseph A. Dowling Dissertation Award and a Lawrence Henry Gipson Research Fellowship.  Just recently I published my dissertation as a book entitled Manufacturing Independence: Industrial Innovation in the American Revolution.
