- Field Clerk - Public Policy
I am interested in the ways public policy has shaped understandings of gender, race, sexuality, and class in U.S. politics over the past fifty years. My Ph.D. is in Political Science with a minor program in Feminist and Critical Sexuality Studies from the University of Minnesota. I also hold a Masters in Public Policy with a focus on Gender, Law, and Sports Policy. Before attending graduate school, I was an Assistant Women's Rowing Coach at the University of Minnesota for five years. Here at UMass, I am jointly appointed in the Department of History.
My work has been published in Politics, Groups, and Identities, the Journal of Women, Policy & Politics, and Social Science Quarterly. It has been featured at The Washington Post, Vox, and Minnesota Public Radio.
I teach classes about the history of public policy in the U.S. at all levels of the curriculum.
