In my scholarship and teaching, I bring historical methods and social theory to bear on the analysis of continuing and unfolding crucial debates. My research incorporates both empirical and analytical work drawn from the social sciences as it applies to problems of technological change, industrialisation, colonialism, ecological transformations, slavery and globalisation.
One of the central aims of my research is to advance more nuanced and complex world histories that devote attention to global connections and circulation while incorporating accounts of marginalised and excluded communities, such as peasants, slaves and indigenous peoples.
I am also an associate researcher at the IBC Network, member of the INET's Young Scholars Initiative, and researcher at two projects funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness focusing, respectively, on the history of inequality and the transnational history of capitalism in Latin America.
I have been a reviewer for several academic journals, including History of Science, Enterprise & Society, History of Technology, Empiria, Historia Mexicana and Investigaciones de Historia Económica as well as for international publishers such as Bloomsbury, Rowman & Littlefield and Palgrave.
