My research interests lie in sixteenth to eighteenth century Atlantic History, intellectual history, and African Diaspora. In my PhD thesis, tentatively titled “Ethiopian Royal Vassals: free black itinerancy in the Iberian Atlantic (1500-1640),” I explore the connections between black communities in three key port cities in the Iberian Atlantic and interrogate the emergence of black Atlantic Catholic cultures.
