I am currently Senior Lecturer in Modern Jewish History in the School of Archeology, Religion, and History at Cardiff University. I grew up in the northeastern United States. I completed my PhD in international history at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland in 2015, and then spent several years as a researcher/tutor at Oxford before coming to Cardiff. I speak Yiddish and French; רעדט מיט מיר ייִדיש. I have two children and enjoy singing.
