  • Graduate Student

I graduated with a B.A. in history from the University of Minnesota in 2015. During my undergraduate career, I spent my summers in Central America, and subsequently developed an interest in the history of the Sandinista Revolution. After being awarded the UROP Scholarship in 2015, I conducted research based on oral histories  in Leon, Nicaragua. 

Currently, my research is related to Nicaraguans unique experience with  missionary evangelicalism during the 1980's, particularly how Christian fundamentalism interacted with revolutionary socialist ideology.
