Scholarly Interests

My research interests have grown and evolved throughout my journey in academia. They range from German history and military history to gender theory, and most recently, the history of emotions. My current research project focuses on conflict, violence, and the political manipulation of emotions.


Development of critical analytical abilities is the core focus of my classroom. Reading primary and secondary sources, and relating them to historical themes and debates is a key component in learning for historical studies. I also try to incorporate avenues for student debate and participation to host an intersectional debate on key topics and issues.
