My research focuses on the sociological issues within agricultural education. I am interested in how agricultural education functions in society and how society impacts agricultural education. Specifically, my research often focuses on agrarian ideologies, whiteness, history, and critical inquiry in agricultural education as well as agriculture as a whole. I also conduct research which examines educational methods and outcomes in agricultural education.
