Welcome! I’m a historian of modern Ottoman and European political thought, with a focus on the nineteenth century. This website offers an overview of my research, teaching, and things I’ve written.

I completed my Ph.D. in 2017 in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago, and I’m currently an Early Career Fellow at Lichtenberg-Kolleg, the Göttingen Institute for Advanced Study, where I’m at work on a book project based on my dissertation: “The Assembly Hall of the World: Ottomanism and the Birth of Global Politics.” I’m also a review editor for H-Ideas, an open-access network for new scholarship in intellectual history.

Alongside my scholarly work, I have written about history, contemporary culture, pedagogy, and university life for n+1, The New YorkerInside Higher Ed, and more. If you have questions or want to collaborate, please be in touch!
