I am trained as a scholar of international economic development and human geography. In my research I use food and agricultural production as a lens to examine power relations and resistance as they relate to capitalist-driven economic development. My research is motivated by a desire to understand the geopolitics of food systems—from the local to the global—and to produce research relevant to improving the equity and sustainability of such systems. I conduct research in both peripheral and core economic areas. For more information please see my personal website.
