He is currently working on two research projects.  The first is a social history of the American military presence in the Federal Republic of Germany from 1945-1995.  The second examines the role of testimony in shaping narratives of concentration camp liberation in the United States and Germany.  Since 2018, he has published articles in Central European HistoryHolocaust and Genocide StudiesJournal of Military History, German Politics and Society, and War in History.  His most recent article, about an American board game that became a prominent symbol for the West German Peace Movement, appeared in 2022 in War and Society.
