I am an historian specializing in the history of science and medicine in the United States. I work as a Lecturer at Oklahoma State University (teaching online courses) and as an Adjunct Professor (teaching live courses) at Southwest Minnesota State University. Currently, I’m writing a book about eugenics, sterilization, and carceral power at a girls’ reform school in Kansas. I have taught the American history survey as well as courses on the Gilded Age, American Thought and Culture, and WWII. I have in the past also taught courses on the history of evolutionary theory, magical realism in literature, and composition and rhetoric.
