Research Interests

My research and teaching interests include U.S. Marine Corps amphibious operations, military innovation/adaptation, and 20th-century American military history.  My dissertation focuses on the coordination of naval gunfire and close air support during the Pacific War while investigating questions over military culture, organizational learning, and wartime adaptation.
