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 research affiliate with the School of Environment at the University of Auckland in New Zealand and the Department of Geography at Pennsylvania State University in the USA. 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.
