Maura Chhun received her Ph.D from the University of Colorado in 2015, where she researched the 1918 Flu Pandemic in British India, focusing on the inadequate response of the British government. She has been teaching the history of World War II and the Holocaust at Metropolitan State University in Minnesota since 2016.

Her research interests lie in the intersection of the history of public health and empire, while her teaching focuses largely on the history of war and genocide. She has presented public lectures on World War I as well as the history of concentration camps, and co-designed a course on the math and history of global pandemics with Matthew Moynihan at Framingham State University.
