About Me

I am a PhD candidate at Indiana University studying United States history. My research focuses on the changing U.S. practices of overt psychological warfare from the Korean War to the Vietnam War. My dissertation examines the changing confidence in persuasion from the 1950s to the 1970s, not only in the realm of war but in larger American contexts. My research examines the two-way flow of information from homefront to war-front and back again to help understand how Americans saw themselves, their enemies, and the country’s place in the world during the Cold War.

I earned my M.A. in U.S. History from Indiana University and my B.A. in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
