I am an Assistant Professor of History at Lehman College. I study the intersection of political and social history in the United States, with particular focus on politics, capitalism, race and class, cities, and social movements. 

My first book, The Long Crisis: New York City and the Path to Neoliberalism, is out from Oxford University Press. It uses the sweeping transformation of post-1960s New York City to trace how market-oriented policies have come to proliferate across American life over the past five decades. My research has also appeared in Modern American History, the Journal of Social History, the Journal of Urban History, and several edited collections.

I am currently working on my second book, “Smash the Klan”: Fighting the White Power Movement in the Late Twentieth Century.
