I am a political historian of modern US with a specialty in American Socialism and 3rd-Party movements. I am a PhD Candidate at Binghamton University. My dissertation, "Hiding in Plain Sight: American Socialists at the State Level, 1899-1945," explores how Socialist state legislators operated in statehouses during the early 20th century. I have taught courses primarily focused on the modern United States, including a comparative course that focused on the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression.
