Bio

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at Colorado State University.

My research focuses on food as a site of economic, political, and social struggle. My current work studies food systems and cultures and social movements at intersections of carcerality, gentrification, and racial capitalism. Underlying these interests is an ongoing engagement with how activists and scholars articulate and practice food justice and what this means for building broad based social movements.

In short, I study food as a lens to address a broad range of sociological questions around social change, political economy, urban and rural development, ethnoracial and class hierarchies, human/nature relations, and power.

I teach courses on the sociology of food and agriculture, food justice, social movements, and social problems.
