I am a postdoctoral fellow at the College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources at the University of Missouri. I work with Dr. Sarah Low at the Division of Social Sciences on research and Extension programming centered around regional economic & entrepreneurial development (MU Exceed). I am working on a variety of different projects in different topic areas, ranging from small-town economic revitalization to business dynamics and local entrepreneurship. I earned my Ph.D. in public policy & management from the John Glenn College of Public Affairs (Ohio State University).
