I currently acquire projects in the fields of Classics, Archaeology, Modern European History, and Military History. Prior to joining the acquisitions team at Cornell University Press in May 2015, I completed a Ph.D. and two postdoctoral fellowships in molecular genetics and evolutionary biology. My transition from academics to publishing was fueled not only by a passion for editing and reviewing scholarly content, but also a desire to promote that content to a larger audience. My other hobbies include hiking, genealogy, bourbon, and creating Twitter hashtags (#Acquisitioning, #LetsPublishSomeBooks, etc.)
