- Professor; Dept. Chair (Teaching Abroad Spring 2020)

Research Interests

My book, Selling the Yellow Jersey: The Tour de France in the Global Age (University of Chicago Press, forthcoming 2014), places the history of the classic event in a global context.

I am developing a research project that will examine travel, global networks, and urban development in small to medium-sized cities from the mid-19th century to the 1930s.

Teaching Interests

I enjoy teaching a wide variety of courses including our Western Civilization survey, 20th-Century Europe, History of Sport, History of Popular Culture, and The City in History.
