I am a historian of Latin America, with a specialty in colonial Mexico. I am the author of Gamboa’s World: Justice, Silver Mining and Imperial Reform in New Spain, published by the University of New Mexico Press in 2021.
I teach a variety of courses on Latin American history, including colonial and national period surveys, the history of Mexico, environmental history of Latin America, and the history of US-Latin American relations. Prior to my 2012 appointment to SUNY New Paltz, I taught for two years at Trinity University in San Antonio. I have a PhD from the University of Texas at Austin and a J.D. from the University of Toronto.
