I am passionate about conducting research that creates knowledge to support the development of equitable and sustainable food systems. My current research focuses on how urban agriculture interacts with the physical and cultural environment in which it is located. This project is embeded in Minneapolis/St. Paul and utilizes participatory research to explore ecosystem services (such as soil health, biodiversity, crop production, etc.) and develop long-term community-university collaboration networks.
