I am a doctoral student in History at George Mason University and a graduate research assistant at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. My dissertation is tentatively titled “With All Her Sad Disasters, What Do We See in this City?”: Reconstruction, Race, and the Politics of Disaster in Richmond, 1870-1918. I study the history of disasters in the the Reconstruction South, digital history, and public history.
