Before enrolling at Emory, I received a double degree in History and German at the University of Tennessee. During my undergraduate education, I studied abroad in England, Germany, and Austria. My research interests broadly encompass the history of twentieth-century Germany, particularly the period after 1945. More specifically, my focus is on the history of public health policies and practices in Germany and on German engagement with international/global health campaigns and practices. My research has thus far been supported by Emory's Department of History.

I also have an interest in digital scholarship and digital pedagogy, which has so far found a practical application in designing the conference websites for the 2018 and 2019 Southeast German Studies Workshops.
