Undergraduate research is at the heart of my teaching.

Research animates my discipline and my undergraduates learn why historians think what they do as they develop their own research skills. I teach our students, regardless of their different backgrounds and levels of academic preparation, to understand the problem at hand, to research, synthesize and analyze using a variety of tools and strategies, and to write cogently and speak thoughtfully about the process and outcomes. In this process, they build their historical expertise and learn skills that help them succeed in other classes, in their subsequent careers and as citizens.
