I am a specialist on slavery and colonialism in the early modern Atlantic world, especially the British Caribbean.  I teach Atlantic and early American history, including introductory courses on the history of the African Diaspora and the memory of slavery as well as upper-level courses on the transatlantic slave trade, colonial America, and the Caribbean.  My first book, Surviving Slavery in the British Caribbean, was recently published by the University of Pennsylvania Press.  My work has also appeared in the William and Mary QuarterlySlavery & Abolition, and the New West Indian Guide.  My research has been supported by fellowships and grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the U.S. Department of Education, the American Historical Association, and Harvard University’s International Seminar on the History of the Atlantic World, among others.
