I am a historian of the United States and a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of History at Duke University.
My dissertation, “Uncle Sam on the Family Farm: Farm Policy, Rural Economic Development, and the Business of Southern Agriculture, 1946-1980” examines federal farm and rural economic development policy in the Sunbelt in the decades following World War II. My research interests include U.S. agriculture, the American regulatory state, and business history. I am a recipient of a summer research fellowship from the Tobin Project and past participant in the Business History Conference Oxford Journals Doctoral Colloquium.
I am currently the Graduate Intern of the John W. Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising, and Marketing History in the Rubenstein Library at Duke University.
