Associate Professor and Arrell Chair in Food, Policy, and Society, University of Guelph

I am an applied social scientist with training in anthropology and ecology. I have interests in sustainability, food systems and security, and social and environmental justice. I collaborate with communities across North America, from Alaska to to Mexico, Saskatchewan to Georgian Bay, on projects related to food security, conflict, environmental stewardship, and social justice.

My first book, "Finding our Niche: Toward a Restorative Human Ecology," will release in Fall, 2020, from Fernwood Publishing. Find out more at http://findingournichebook.com
