Personal Statement

I am a historian of modern Germany. I grew up in New York, and studied in Montreal and at King's College Cambridge before coming to Liverpool. I have held fellowships and visiting professorships in Britain (King's College Cambridge), the United States (US Holocaust Memorial Museum Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies), Germany (Free University Berlin, Max-Planck-Institut für Geschichtswissenschaft Göttingen, University of Bochum, Herzog-August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel), and South Korea (Sogang University, Seoul). I retired from my post at the University of Liverpool in 2021, but I remain active in personal research, funded projects and public engagement, and in supporting colleagues and PhD students.
