I received a Master’s degree in early American History from the University of Maine in 1999 with a particular focus on the local and imperial dimensions of the Seven Years’ War in Northern New England. In 2001, I finished a Magister Artium degree in European History, Geography and Political Science from Gerhard-Mercator-Universität in Germany, with a thesis on British-Prussian relations from the revolutions of 1848 to the founding of the German Empire in 1871. In 2008, I defended my Ph.D. dissertation on post-World War II migration of German-speakers to Canada. I have been teaching for the History Department since 2004.
