Thanks for visiting. I use this website to put out half-baked research findings, share information on archives, reflect on developments in the field of history, and (mostly) promote my publications and conference participation.
- I am employed by the History and Public Policy Program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC. I’ve worked at the Wilson Center as a full-time employee since 2012.
- I have a Ph.D. (2017) and M.A. (2014) from the Department of History at The George Washington University. I wrote my dissertation on “Xinjiang’s 100,000: State-led Urban-to-Rural Population Resettlement in Socialist China.”
- I grew up in northeast Ohio and earned my B.A. in history from Hiram College in 2010, graduating summa cum laude. As an undergrad I also spent 3 semesters with Duke University and Middlebury College at their respective campuses in China.
- My publications have appeared in Diplomatic History, International History Review, Journal of American-East Asian Relations, Journal of Northeast Asian History, Cold War History, Journal of Cold War Studies, Chinese Historical Review, and Journal of Korean Studies, among other outlets, and I have presented at conferences across North America, Asia, and Europe.
I live and work in the Washington, D.C., area.
Elsewhere on this site, I have pages covering my research, interests in scholarly practices in the digital age, and dissertation project. You can also get to know me on a line-by-line basis through my curriculum vitae. Feel free to get in touch.
As you might expect, my musings here reflect only my own views and not those of my employer or any of past/present institutional affiliations.
