After growing up in the beautiful Washington State, I received a double degree in History and International Studies at the University of Washington.  During my undergraduate education, I studied abroad in both South Africa and Brussels.  My broad academic interests include gender studies, modern Africa, colonial law, and migration and development.  My research and training has thus far been supported by the Laney Graduate School, a Title VI/NRC FLAS in IsiZulu, and by the Social Science Research Council's Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship program.
