Material histories of religion, emphasizing the work of people in and on the world, stemming from American history and culture through the networks of resource extraction to oceanic spaces and the dark of coal mines. Comparative studies of religion and globalization embedded in those networks, influencing and influenced by the relentless frames of capitalism and “civilization.”

I earned both my Ph.D. (2020) and M.A. (2017) in history from Boston University, where I was a Title VI Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellow in Igbo. I received  my B.A. (2014) from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon.  My research focuses on religious encounters in Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly religious conversion and the expansion of American mission churches, and has been supported by an external fellowship from the Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah (2018-2019). My scholarship has appeared in the International Journal of African Historical Studies and the Journal of Mormon History, and has been taught in history and religion courses at institutions such as the University of Utah and Whitman College. I am a book review editor for H-Africa (2019- ), and the former managing editor of the African Conflict and Peacebuilding Review (2017-2020), and the co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Workshop on African History.
