Bio

I am a second year PhD student in Mississippi State’s Agriculture, Rural, and Environmental Node. I focus on the intersection of culture and Environmental and agricultural concerns and creations. My latest project analyzes the cultural and agricultural creation of the modern golf course in the American Southeast. I am particularly interested in the process of standardizing ascetics in the post World War era in light of environmental limitations.
