My research focuses on the history of American foreign relations, with special emphasis on the Middle East in the 1970s. I completed my PhD, entitled 'The President and the Peacemaker: Jimmy Carter and the Domestic Politics of Arab-Israeli Diplomacy, 1977-1980,' in the International History Department at the LSE in 2013.
My first book is due out soon with Palgrave Macmillan and I have begun work on my next project, a U.S. domestic history of the Iran hostage crisis. I am a Managing Editor for Cold War History and have taught as a visiting lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to academia, I spent a decade in journalism, latterly as senior producer and London editorial manager for NBCNews.com.
