In 2020, as part of my graduate-level independent study, I conducted research into the war crimes committed by Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin, both prior to and throughout the European war between the Nazis and the Soviets. This research culminated in a paper of approximately 35 pages which looked closely at aggregate data regarding European death totals from World War II. This project was supervised by Dr. David Robertson. This is also an area in which I continue to conduct research, not only for my own edification, but also to inform my work at the Holocaust museum, and as an on-going part of my journey toward a doctorate. During the spring of 2022, I am teaching a number of adjunct courses at Maryville University in St. Louis. Those courses include Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, World History to 1500, and American History Since 1877. I hope to continue my relationship with Maryville well into the future, and to continue my own education as a PhD student at Saint Louis University in 2024.
UNDERGRADUATE | WWI | WW II | HOLOCAUST
I completed my undergraduate work at Washington University in St. Louis (2015-2018, Phi Beta Kappa), where my coursework focused heavily on World War I, World War II, and the Holocaust. As part of my undergraduate honors research, I conducted research into the problematic relationship between President Franklin Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. This project was supervised by Dr. Maire Murphy. I continue to conduct research in this area, and I hope to begin publishing some smaller works in the near future, as well as a larger work that I plan to compose during and after the completion of my Ph.D, a personal journey which will hopefully begin in 2024.
