Curriculum Vitae

Current research is concerned with the changes and interrelationships of agriculture and rural communities and their continuing viability. This includes the examination of such factors as public policies that affect rural areas, adoption and diffusion of new technologies, conservation of natural resources, and strategies for rural development. A major interest is the application of human ecology theory for the explanation of changes in rural society.
