I am an assistant professor of history at Howard University, where I began teaching after completing a Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University in April 2013. My work centers on seventeenth, eighteenth and early-nineteenth century Europe, especially France, and European connections with other parts of the world. My first book, which is under contract with the University of Virginia Press, examines the role of foreign, black and Jewish troops in the French army during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. I am also at work on a second book on the history of collective punishment and collateral violence in Old Regime and revolutionary France and Saint-Domingue.
