I joined the University of Birmingham in autumn of 2012, after teaching in the History Department in West Point. My first book was on the Habsburg occupation of Serbia during the First World War and I continue to work on issues at the intersection of modern Central and Eastern Europe, international history, and war and society. I am also interested in broader issues of global order and international law in the contemporary era. At West Point, I taught on war and society in the modern era, the history of strategy, and modern Central and Eastern European history. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 2006.
