Bio: 

My research interests include the intersections of religion, race, politics, and class in America and the world. I am especially interested in the relationship between religion and politics both nationally and globally. My dissertation, titled “Battle for the Bodies and Souls of a Continent: The Politics of American Missions in Africa,” examines the political activities of American foreign missionaries on the African continent and how religious conflicts among Protestants, Catholics, and Muslims found political expression.
