My research interests broadly include maritime, social and economic history in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. I focus more specifically in the Atlantic Ocean. I enjoy researching the New England whaling industry and its role in shaping the world economy and American identity during the Early National era. I am also interested in globalization, maritime merchants, transnational trade and material culture.
