Candidate for Ph.D., History, Boston College
BA, History and International Affairs, Florida State University
Senior Honors Thesis: “The German Engagement in Finland during World War II, 1942-1944: The End of the Waffenbrüderschaft.”
My primary area of study is Modern European History focusing on Germany. I am interested in continuities between the Third Reich and the Bundesrepublik, the creation of German democracy after the war, European reconciliation, and the foreign policy of both West and East Germany during the Cold War. I am also interested in transatlantic relations between Europe and Latin America in light of the developments of the Cold War and the Human Rights revolution. Therefore, my second area of study is Latin American and Caribbean History since independence.
