Statement of Research:
My dissertation examines the politics of the environment during the American occupation of Germany from 1945 to 1955 and argues that the environment provided a space for Germans to utilize pre-war traditions and laws to contest the policies and sovereignty of the American Military Government. My research interests include War and Society in Europe and the United States; Environmental History; Modern German History; 20th Century U.S. History.
