Meet Our Scholars
As an environmental historian, I try to make obvious the overlooked ecological relationships—often hidden—that have built the world we live in today. My research examines the role that commercial chemists played across the 20th century in transforming what domestic workers and homemakers expected ‘cleanness’ to mean . . . to look like, feel like, and smell like. Though we often think about the impacts of industrialization on downstream ecosystems or in factories, my research invites readers to consider what industrialization has meant for nature right where we live: in our homes and in our bodies.
