I am a Ph.D. candidate in American history and Porter Ogden Jacobus fellow at Princeton University. I principally study nineteenth-century American legal institutions, practice, and theory—the development of the legal profession, the reform of civil trial practice, the codification of the common law, and the intersection of American law and American Christianity.
I have received legal history fellowships from Yale Law School, the Hurst Institute at the University of Wisconsin Law School, and the American Society for Legal History, and a religious history fellowship from the Center for the Study of Religion at Princeton University.
