About

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of American Studies at Brown University, where I am also a MA candidate in the Department of the History of Art and Architecture. I received my MA in Public Humanities in 2016, also from Brown University, and a BA in Art History and History, with minors in African Studies and Women’s Studies, from Emory University in 2010.

My professional experience includes training by the Center for Curatorial Leadership, where I was a participant in the 2018 CCL/Mellon Foundation Seminar in Curatorial Practice, under the mentorship of Elizabeth Easton, CCL Co-founder and Director, and Courtney J. Martin, Director of the Yale Center for British Art.

I have held positions in cultural institutions throughout the United States, including the Center for the Slavery and Justice at Brown University, with Professor B. Anthony Bogues; the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, with Nancy Bercaw, Curator, Division of Political History, the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History; the Megan Fox Kelly Art Advisory; the Atlanta History Center; and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with Alisa LaGamma, Ceil and Michael E. Pulitzer Curator in Charge of the Department of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.

Currently, I am the Curatorial Fellow at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, with Ruth Erickson, Mannion Family Curator, and Eva Respini, Barbara Lee Chief Curator, as well as a 2019-2020 Tyson Scholar of American Art at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
