Rebecca studies 19th- and 20th-century social and economic history in North America and Western Europe. She is especially interested in how shifting economic conditions act as a driving force in social change, and vice versa. Her current focus is on consumerism as a lens for understanding middle-class aspirational norms and values in the 20th century. She is also interested in microhistory and the history of education.

Rebecca graduated from York University summa cum laude, with degrees in history and finance. Her senior work looked at conflict and cooperation within labour negotiations in Toronto's Jewish garment industry in the 1930s.
