Current and Upcoming
On 25 July 2019, I will deliver my first public lecture in Singapore.My lecture, entitled “The Malayan Emergency: An American Obsession”, will be hosted by the National Library.
In this talk, I will examine US leaders’ enduring fascination with British counterinsurgency strategies in Malaya in the early Cold War, delving into how this obsession shaped American policies in Vietnam and beyond.

In March 2019, a few weeks before the release of my book, Arc of Containment, I had the opportunity to share my research at the University of Texas at Austin (The Clements Center for National Security), Columbia University (The Weatherhead East Asian Studies Institute), and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (Washington History Seminar).
When my book was released in April 2019, I was able to visit and speak at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Center for Southeast Asian Studies), Northwestern University (Department of History) and the University of Chicago (Committee on International Relations).
