I’m a historian of modern European and global history, currently finishing a PhD at Duke University. My interests are in social, cultural, and intellectual history, and in particular in issues around empire, humanitarianism, race, migration, and media. Having also trained in African history, my research explores how humanitarian aid and refugee migrations transformed Europe’s relation to Africa and the wider world in the later twentieth century. My work draws on archival research and oral histories, and it intersects with scholarship in anthropology, public policy, and media studies.
