I am a specialist in public history, historic preservation, and community history, with an interest in how the preservation and interpretation of cultural and natural resources influences historical memory and public perceptions of the past. I am also interested in the role historic preservation can play in building sustainable communities. My current research focuses on the historical development and preservation of African-American burial grounds in Pennsylvania. I currently serve as an appointed member of the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Board.
