  • About

    "I am a PhD candidate in Public Policy and Sociology. I recently
    completed a project examining contention over seed patents in Canada
    and the relationship to transnational activism. I am now studying the
    politics of (re)localizing food through a comparison of Detroit and
    Cleveland. My research generally examines political contention, the
    politics of knowledge and expertise, and democratic engagement in
    policy-making vis-a-vis the environment and food and agriculture, in
    particular. I utilize comparative-historical and qualitative methods
    in my analyses."
