Research and Activities
My research is broadly concerned with political ecology, alternative economic networks, and gender in the Commonwealth of Dominica, Eastern Caribbean. Specifically, I am interested in the interplay between contemporary manifestations of agri-food governance and endogenous systems of food production and exchange as well as how such interactions and practices relate to gender.
