Profile

My current research examines governance in the eighteenth-century Portuguese Empire in America.

I began studying the history of Iberia and Latin America as an undergraduate exchange student at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid. My book Tropical Versailles (2001) examined the ways in which the Napoleonic invasion of Portugal transformed understandings of monarchy and empire in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. My current research examines governance in the eighteenth-century Portuguese Empire in America. At Seton Hall, along with Western Civilization and Latin American History I and II, I teach courses on the political and cultural history of Latin America and Iberia.
