Nicole is a PhD student in the History Department. Her research focuses on encounters between American Indians, Europeans, and Africans during the early modern era. Her work considers how people communicated with and understood one another when meeting for the first time. She also examines the ways in which food, animals, microbes, flora, weather patterns, cognitive processes, landscape, and memory impacted and structured interactions between Natives and newcomers. When Nicole is not probing the complexities of early modern cross-cultural encounters, she is usually hanging out with her dogs or trying out new recipes.
