Hello and welcome! I specialize in the American home front during World War II, particularly Japanese American incarceration, civil-military relations, and race. I received my Ph.D. in American History from the University of Maryland in 2013 and was an assistant professor at Valdosta State University and Cleveland State University before becoming a Historian with the Institute for the Study of War and Democracy at The National WWII Museum in New Orleans in 2021.

My work has been supported by 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.
