I am a human geographer who studies the political relations between people and place, particularly through a feminist lens. I earned both my Ph.D. and M.A. in Geography from the University of Washington and my B.A. in Geography from the University of Colorado. I am a senior lecturer at the University of Auckland in New Zealand where I teach in Geography, Environmental Management, Gender Studies and Global Studies and also served as the deputy director of Global Studies. Previously, at the University of Washington, I was a graduate student instructor in Geography and the director for the New Zealand study abroad program through the Comparative History of Ideas. My areas of research include care ethics, gender relations, food politics, and children’s political agency. My scholarship has been published in academic journals such as Gender, Place and Culture, Political Geography, and Geoforum.
