I am an environmental, economic, and applied anthropologist who examines how decisions about resource access and use are affected by contexts of social interactions, cultural expectations, and institutions. I have studied access to marine resources in the Baja California region of Mexico, agricultural water systems under climate change in Ethiopia, and urban food sovereignty in Charlotte, NC.
