I plan to use my degree to:
Research and question (perhaps as a PhD student) ways to make food and farming more sustainable in our changing world.
What I enjoyed most about my experience in Crop and Soil Sciences at NC State was:
The people! The Williams Hall family will be missed.
While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:
My committee, my wife, my dog.
Now that I have graduated, I’m most looking forward to:
Utilizing my time at NCSU to continue my educational, research, and professional goals.
