Thank you for stopping by my website. I am an associate professor of environmental and agricultural history at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. My research focuses on the history of aerial pesticide application, health, and food production in North America's Grasslands. I examine the relationships between farmers, aerial sprayers, agriculturalists, pests, and poisons as well as the emerging concepts of toxicity throughout the Cold War in response to twentieth century environmental and technological changes. I teach environmental and agricultural history, the history of science and technology, the American West, and public history.
