My research interests include issues of colonialism, war, white supremacy, and morality in U.S. foreign relations. My early work focused on nuclear history as a way of examining the intersection between science, ethics, and decision making. I am currently working on a book-length study of the radical internationalism of the Black Panther Party (BPP) and its relationship to the Third World, the Cold War, and neoliberal globalization. I am also in the early stages of a project examining orientalism and colonialism in virtual spaces through the medium of video games such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Medal of Honor.
