With a specialization in military and medieval European history and a deep interest in ancient history, Alexandra has made it her mission to bring sociological perspectives into the study of history by integrating the study of demographics and other aspects into her lectures.

As an Adjunct Professor of the History Department and Data Science Institute, Alexandra brings her knowledge of military and medieval European history to the forefront. She is known for her engaging lectures that are intertwined with odd tidbits of history that she likes to call in the classroom “weird history” and her ability to connect the past to the present in meaningful ways. Her particular expertise in demographics and statistical analysis also allows her to explore the social and economic factors that have shaped historical events.

In her free time, she enjoys reading historical fiction/non-fiction, painting, singing, traveling, writing and exploring the cultural heritage of her home state of New Jersey.
