Research Interests

My research involves exploring the intersection of the military, disability, and higher education. In exploring this convergence I hope to further understand how experiencing a service-connected injury affects a veteran’s transition from the military to higher education. So far my focus has been on the experiences of disabled veterans in the university classroom; namely, how the onset of disability in conjunction with military separation shapes the experiences of veterans in the classroom. Currently I am exploring how different service-connected injuries impact classroom experiences.
