I am an assistant professor of history at Howard University, where I began working after completing a Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University in April 2013. My teaching and research interests center on seventeenth, eighteenth and early-nineteenth century Europe, especially France, and European connections with other parts of the world. I am currently preparing a book manuscript on foreigners and minority groups in the service of the French military between the Old Regime and the Second Restoration. I am also pursuing a project dealing with conceptualizations of collective punishment in Old Regime and revolutionary France.
