Academic Specialties and Other Interests
I am a professor in the History department, and I also advise students who participate in our European Studies minor. My teaching and research focus on the history of Europe and its colonial empires in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Some of my favorite experiences at Beloit have been around working with and mentoring students, including giving advice to international students studying at Beloit and Beloit students planning to study abroad, and working one-on-one with students in research projects. Building relationships with my advisees, and getting to know who a student is both in and beyond my classrooms, gives me the opportunity to help students find their true passions, whether it is learning about history or preparing for a future in a wide range of fields such as education, research, law, journalism, political activism or NGO work. I’m excited to learn more about your goals and passions, and to support you as you build your Beloit Experience!
