Research Interests

My primary area of interest is 19th century and early 20th century U.S. history, with an emphasis on the period from the Civil War to the Great Depression. My dissertation research will focus on Civil War POW camps and the rates of survival based on a number of factors including environment, role of camp commanders, personal interactions, et al. While the Civil War has always been one of the favorite areas of U.S. history, my interests also include race relations, immigration, and rising U.S. imperialism during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
