    Research Interests

    I study rural and agricultural landscapes by utilizing field work and land use and land cover change data products derived from remotely-sensed satellite imagery, as well as more traditional types of data such as those from the quinquennial U.S. Department of Agriculture's Census of Agriculture. Courses I teach are designed around my research.
