My interest is in colonial Latin America. I spent the last two years working on my MA at the University of North Florida under Dr. Michael Francis, studying Spain’s early colonial presence in Florida. I am currently interested in the early colonization of Meso-America, especially early conversion efforts by missionary orders among native peoples.
