I am a political ecologist and rural sociologist studying agrarian change in northern Canada, with a specific focus on climate-driven subarctic/arctic agriculture. My research, based on on-going ethnographic fieldwork and archival research in the Northwest Territories, Canada, critically examines the circumpolar north as a new juridical and agrarian frontier. My previous work examined gender inequities in livestock systems in East Africa and local food systems in the southeastern US.
Thank you to the National Science Foundation, US-Canada Fulbright Commission, UC Berkeley Canadian Studies Center, UC Berkeley Center for Race and Gender, FLAS / US Dept of Education, Berkeley Food Institute, and the Rausser College of Natural Resources for supporting my graduate work.
