Bio

I'm a PhD student from Boiling Springs, North Carolina. I study U.S. history with a focus on environmental and southern history. My research interests revolve around feral hogs in the American South and how their presence as an invasive species has impacted native flora and fauna, as well as their relationship with humanity.
