Hello and welcome! I specialize in the American home front during World War II, particularly Japanese American incarceration, civil-military relations, and race.

I'm currently an Assistant Professor of Security and Military Studies at the Air Command and Staff College at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama where I teach courses in national security, political affairs and strategy,  and contemporary and emerging war fighting.


I received my Ph.D. in American History from the University of Maryland in 2013 and held teaching positions at Valdosta State University, Cleveland State University, and West Point.


From 2021 until 2023, I was  Senior Historian with the Institute for the Study of War and Democracy at The National WWII Museum in New Orleans where I worked on a number of public history initiatives, including the recently-opened Liberation Pavilion. I also serve as a non-resident fellow for The Museum.

My award-winning work has been supported with grants and fellowships from the Social Science Research Council, the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, the Office of Diversity at the United States Military Academy at West Point, the Library of Congress, and the American Council of Learned Societies.
