About my research

"I care about colonial America because it allows us to study events, such as large-scale immigration and cultural conflict, that occur all over the world. Colonial America is a breeding ground for different ideas about colonialism, as well as originating a very important literary tradition. The initial meetings of Indians and settlers remain absolutely fascinating to me."

About Rosalind Franklin

"Rosalind Franklin: I'm impressed and inspired by Rosalind Franklin for her groundbreaking work on the building blocks of human beings. It's wonderful to have a fellowship with her name, so that she, years later, can get some of the academic recognition that she earned, but did not receive, during her life."
