Current Research Interests:
I am interested in mentoring graduate and undergraduate students who would like to study and research 20th century United States political and public policy history. Additionally, I will supervise projects that explore the links between domestic political history and America’s role in the world. Because of my own research agenda, I am happy to work with students interested in the histories of refugees, immigration, and human rights.
In recent years, I have worked with graduate students studying under Prof. Hamm, Prof. Smith Howard, Prof. Fogarty, Prof. Kizenko, Prof. Gauss, and Prof. White.
