Ph.D., Columbia University, 2013
My research and teaching interests include U.S. health, social, welfare, and disability policy; war and society; health and medicine; and American political development. I am currently completing a book under contract with The Johns Hopkins University Press about the origins and evolution of the U.S. veterans’ health system – now the nation’s largest integrated health care system. It traces changing expectations and perceptions of health care in the United States, and how politics and social circumstances shape the structure, implementation, and experience of federal entitlement programs.
