    Office Phone: 716/673-3878

Specializes in Early America, Atlantic World to 1820, Early American Ethnohistory, and Native American History

Teaches the following courses:

  • HIST 105 United States History I
  • HIST 201 Doing History
  • HIST 288 The Atlantic World, 1500-1820
  • HIST 325 Colonial American History

Currently, my research and publications focus on cultural interaction in the Atlantic World, with an emphasis on British-Iroquois relations in the colonial Northeast. I am interested, as well, in the broader subject of multicultural communities throughout the Atlantic World and the ways in which cultural interaction was mediated during encounters. My book manuscript deals with interpreters as cultural mediators between the British and the Iroquois from 1664 to 1775.
