My research interests include the American landscape, material culture, systems thinking, urban planning, and the Anthropocene.  I have explored these themes in recent public history projects, including a 2017 solo exhibit at the AS220, titled Topographics in Pursuit of Spirit: A Month Spent Getting to Know the Providence River, and IN:SITE, a 2016 group show at an abandoned cement mine in Rosendale, New York. 

I love writing, especially historiographic writing, but hope to continue working in other media and finding new ways to narrate lived experience by way of its material traces.  Some of my recent work can be seen at
