Research Interests

I am interested in social/cultural military history, especially regarding how a war’s participants justify (or avoid) interpersonal violence. My dissertation investigates how veterans of the Thousand Days’ War in Colombia negotiated civil reintegration in the decades after the war’s conclusion, especially on the eve of La Violencia.
