Biography

Hello! I have followed a winding path to arrive at the University of Kansas where I focus on African History (in this field, we are expected to answer for the whole continent!). My winding path includes two years living in Tanzania and Kenya where I worked every day to improve my Swahili, laughed and cooked with my family and friends, and helped undergraduate students on study abroad adapt to extremely rural living where they were the only wazungu around for hundreds of miles. I hope to do a place-based history that draws primarily from oral history, ethnography, and Swahili sources.
