I am a legal and social historian of the Middle East. I am associate professor of history at Florida State University. I studied at the Universities of Saskatchewan, Toronto, and Oxford before taking my doctorate in history at Princeton.
My first book, Identifying with Nationality: Europeans, Ottomans, and Egyptians in Alexandria, was published by Columbia University Press in 2017.
I am currently working on a Cairo-centered history of international law between 1870 and 1930.
I am also engaged in a variety of digital projects, which I describe elsewhere on this website.
