My research interests include early American, American Indian, and Atlantic World history, and I specialize in the Dutch-Haudenosaunee frontier. My dissertation traces Dutch elite consolidation of the upper Hudson River fur trade and Mohawk political influence on the ascent of Beverwijck/Albany to a position of prominence in the British empire.
