Research Interests: 

I study U.S. foreign relations and 20th-century American political history. I am interested not only in the formulation of U.S. foreign policy but also its implementation, particularly during Ronald Reagan's presidency. My interest beyond foreign relations also gravitates toward global history and law.

My current project focuses on the Iran-Contra affair.

I am the chair of the History Graduate Association for 2017-2018.
