My research centers on uncovering the agency of marijuana users in New York City during the twentieth century. My dissertation, “Consuming Knowledge: Users of Cannabis in New York City, 1930-1960,” examines the role of marijuana users in shaping social, political, and cultural trends in the decades before the 1960s. I am also interested in other aspects of drug history (addiction and treatment, the drug war, and the nature trading commodities in an illicit market), and I occasionally dabble in sports history.
