Welcome to my Research, Teaching, and Professional Portfolio

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of City & Regional Planning at Cornell University and a Doctoral Fellow with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.  My dissertation project (including Dr. Susan Christopherson, Dr. Todd Schmit, Dr. Miguel Gomez, and Dr. David Brown as committee members) assesses the impacts of alternative food system policies and initiatives. Using multi-disciplinary, mixed-method analysis, I work to identify opportunities for regional community economic development.
