Professional Summary

My research has focused mainly on the History of American foreign relations, especially the Cold War. I also have a significant interest in labor history. I teach the Cold War, World War II, the Vietnam War, the diplomatic history survey, and World History. I was awarded a senior research visiting fellowship to the Nobel Peace Institute in Oslo, Norway, in 2016. I've held various local, state, and national positions with the American Association of University Professors. Currently, I am chair of the national AAUP's government relations committee.
