Ph.D./History, Penn State University. I am an early modern social historian with research interests in English and French merchant communities, empire, seafaring religion, refugee diasporas, and marine science. My recently completed dissertation examines mass privateering and political organization among English and French Channel ports during the sixteenth-century Wars of Religion, which I view as the origin point for early northern commercial and colonial enterprise in the Americas. I serve on the leadership group for MarineLives, an academic/public history organization coordinating the community transcription, enrichment, and analysis of manuscripts from the archives of the English High Court of Admiralty, 1650-1669. The end product will be a publicly and freely available online academic edition.
