He has a total of nineteen years teaching experience and, in addition to teaching at BW, has taught at Cleveland State University, Kent State University and at the Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. His primary research focus is on wartime Greece and the Balkans, but he is also a specialist in Reformation-era Europe, contemporary European history and modern Latin American history. At BW, he also teaches a course on classical antiquity that is mostly focused on ancient Greece and Rome. In 2011, his dissertation, "Time on the Mountain: The Office of Strategic Services in Axis-Occupied Greece," won the Modern Greek Studies Association's biennial Iatrides Dissertation Prize for best dissertation.
