She is broadly interested in the history of capitalism and studies the connections between business and diplomacy in the early national United States. Her dissertation, "Manufacturing Advantage: The Federal Government, Diplomacy, and the Origins of American Industrialization, 1790-1840," explores the early republican transition from merchant to industrial capitalism by analyzing the development of the New England arms and textile industries in the context of federal patronage and expanding geopolitical dominance in the Americas. She is from Holden, Massachusetts, and received a B.A. from Connecticut College in 2006 and an M.A. from Tufts University in 2009.
