I'm a professional historian, writer, teacher, long-distance hiker, and musician. I currently teach at Averett University. In the past, I've held research positions at the London School of Economics and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and teaching posts at the University of Miami (Spanish history) and Penn State Erie (Russian History).
I specialize in modern Europe, with research expertise in modern Spain and Soviet history. My forthcoming book, Stalinism on Trial: Communism and Republican Justice in the Spanish Civil War (Liverpool University Press, 2023), looks at justice, political repression, and communism during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939. The work draws on research conducted over the last decade in archives in Salamanca, Madrid, Barcelona, Vienna, London, and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
