About

Miller Photo I am an assistant professor of history at Dartmouth College and a historian of the United States and the World, with a focus on the United States and the Asia-Pacific.  I received my PhD in international history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2012.

My current research examines the development of the U.S.-Japanese alliance in the aftermath of war and occupation. Entitled Cold War Democracy: The United States and Japan 1945 – 1963, this book draws from American and Japanese archives to explore how competing visions of democracy shaped the U.S.-Japanese relationship.  A portion of this research recently appeared in the journal Diplomatic History. You can read this article here.

At Dartmouth, I teach the introductory class on U.S. history, along with classes on the history of U.S. foreign relations, the Cold War, and the Asia-Pacific Wars of 1931 – 1945. Click here to see syllabi from my courses.
