My research interests center on the intersection of power, knowledge, race, and nonformal education. I am particularly interested epistemological politics surrounding land grant universities and their efforts in agricultural and community development. My previous research explored participatory methodologies and the micro-politics of stakeholder participation.




I previously worked in the areas of food equity and beginning farmer education in Vermont and served for two years with the Peace Corps in Nepal working on projects related to food security and community development.
