His areas of specialty, research and publications involve twentieth century American history, international relations during the Cold War, and the history of science and technology. Specifically he has published works on the ramifications of science and technology for early Cold War American foreign affairs, and on the impact of Cold War policies and events on science. Early in his career, he also published a book on nineteenth century Anglo-American-Canadian relations involving border crossings by American and Canadian tribal peoples. Currently he is working on a book about the influence of “scientific internationalism” – a professional value-based ideology with political dimensions prevalent among the scientific community – on American foreign policy during the Truman, Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations, The book is an expansion of a Bernath prize-winning journal article published earlier in his career.
