My research focuses on modern U.S. history, with a particular interest in how the political economy and everyday life shape one another. I received my Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2013, where I subsequently worked as a lecturer for four years. In 2017, I joined the history department at the Hebrew University as an Assistant Professor. My first book, Working in Hollywood: How the Studio System Turned Creativity Into Modern Labor, was published in 2018 with UNC Press. My new project examines African American consumer culture in the first half of the 20th century. I teach courses on African American History, the history of Capitalism, American Consumer Culture, and Labor History
