My research interests include issues of race, war, and morality in U.S. foreign relations . I have written on early nuclear history as a way of examining the intersection between science, ethics, and decision making, including a recently-published article in Diplomatic History on pre-Hiroshima knowledge of radiation effects among American scientists and leaders.
My current research project is a study of the radical internationalism of the Black Panther Party (BPP) and its relationship to the Third World, the Cold War, and neoliberal globalization. My article "Uptight in Babylon: Eldridge Cleaver's Cold War" is forthcoming in Diplomatic History.
