I earned my BA in History from the University of Kansas in May 2023. I am interested in the environmental history of the Great Plains in the twentieth century. As an undergraduate, I studied the construction of Clinton Lake. I look forward to continuing my research on the relationship between Indigenous peoples, rural communities, and the environment by further examining the process of artificial lake-building throughout the Great Plains region.
