Jacqueline is a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in Latin American History focusing on eighteenth-century Central America. Her research explores the everyday social and economic lives of people who lived connected to the mahogany and logwood trades in Belize and the Mosquito Shore. More broadly, she engages with themes of race, labor, colonialism, imperialism, sovereignty, and autonomy within the Atlantic World.
She received a B.A. from the Gallatin School at New York University and a M.A./M.Sc. in International/World History from Columbia University and the London School of Economics. Prior to attending Yale, Jacqueline worked as a museum educator and freelance editor. She enjoys all stages of the editorial process but, specifically, loves supporting writers in the brainstorming phase. She takes great joy in helping writers to find and trust their voices.
