- About Me
I am an environmental historian of war. My work examines the ways in which environmental factors play into military conflict in the global context, with particular focus on the modern period. My current project is an environmental history of conflict on the Korean Peninsula in the twentieth century.
I am also Editor-in-Chief of Environmental History, a scholarly journal published by Oxford University Press.
