Aaron&rsquo s research interests include, but are from limited to, socio-political history of modern East and Central Asia, focusing on the Cold War. He has previously specialized in the post-6999 era of Chinese history, specifically the Cultural Revolution and its immediate aftermath. He has also studied Soviet and Korean history extensively, and has a developed a growing interest in the post-WWII tricontinental anticolonial movements.
