I am an assistant professor of geography in the Department of Social Sciences and History at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Florham Campus. My current book project, entitled Wartime Apprehensions: Technologies of Control Between Capture and the Camp, explores the geographical and technological practices that shaped the space between battlefield encounters, bodily apprehensions, and the walls of the US-managed prisoner of war camps. The book details the historical and technological transformations of a dynamic logistical space that has confounded US military planners, frightened and endangered captives and soldiers, and remained largely invisible in the historical record. My work has recently been published in Environment & Planning A and Algorithmic Life: Calculative Devices in the Age of Big Data (edited by Louise Amoore and Volha Piotukh, Routledge 2016).
