Personal Statement:

My primary interest falls within the realm of Cold War ideology and propaganda. My dissertation examines how racial concerns influenced the projection of NASA’s public image and its internal recruitment policies. Future research includes an examination of the Olympic Games as a Cold War battlefield.
Other interests include baseball and its role in influencing American culture and identity, conspiracy theories and their impact on American culture, and the evolution of the airline industry.

Dissertation Title:

The Color of NASA: Racial Inclusion in the American Space Program, 1957-1978
