Research Interests

My work sits at the intersection of three broad bodies of work: critical urban geography,food studies (particularly the development of agri-food social movements), and theories of property and law. Currently I am studying food justice and urban agricultural production movements in California. Specifically, I focuses on the dynamics of land access and property rights, shifting land use and development, and the role of third sector organizations in food justice organizing.
