Advisor: Professor Zeiler • Andrew is a Ph.D. candidate in modern U.S. history who specializes in the philosophy and ethics of twentieth-century violence. His dissertation focuses on the changing tolerance for the costs of war among U.S. officials between 1943 and 1973 and examines how American policy and morality shifted from unconditional surrender in World War II to “peace with honor” in Vietnam. He has worked as an intern for the Latino History Project in Boulder County, as a genealogist for Ancestry, and currently serves as the History Department’s lead in the Graduate Teacher Program, and as a graduate peer mentor. His teaching interests center on U.S. foreign relations, the global Cold War, and the history of soccer. Andrew holds an M.A. in social sciences from the University of Chicago and an Honors B.A. in history from the University of Utah. When he’s not reading, writing, and teaching history, he enjoys playing soccer, hiking in the Colorado Rockies, and being a dad.
