TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
CURRENT RESEARCH INTERESTS/PROJECTS

My research interests involve using history to understand management decisions in relation to facilities management within collegiate football. By researching the ways university athletic departments have made decisions in relation to funding, capacity, renovations, and decisions to build new, I plan to be able to better analyze decisions for the future.

Specifically, my current research interests focus on how the rich history or collegiate football facilities and how funding has changed over the years and why.
