I joined the Center for European and Mediterranean Studies and the Department of History at New York University in 2012 as an Assistant Professor. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of California at Berkeley, I lectured there with the International and Area Studies Program for a year, teaching courses on contemporary theories of political economy, economic history, and comparative European history.
My research and teaching interests are in 20th century Germany, European unification, European economic history, international political economy, and international relations more broadly. My book project, Export Empire: German Soft Power in Southeastern Europe 1920-1945, explores the relationship between imperialism, economic development, and cultural exchange from the standpoint of non-state actors like trade fairs and professional exchange programs. I’ve also published on wartime financial policies and non-state organizations in Central European History, Contemporary European History, and in book chapters. I’ve been fortunate to have had support from the US Fulbright Program, the Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies, and the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD) for my archival research in Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Essen, and Koblenz.
