I am an Assistant Professor of International Affairs at Texas A&M University’s Bush School of Government and Public Service. I completed my Ph.D. at Vanderbilt University in 2018. I specialize in the history of U.S.-Mexico (Latin America) Relations, Drug Control, and National Security. My work has been supported by a number of fellowships and grants including Fulbright and the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations. I am currently revising my dissertation into a book manuscript.
