Personal profile

Research interests

My research agenda is concerned with how a sociological understanding of everyday eating practices - how they are reproduced, and how they change - can inform transitions towards more sustainable societies. At the heart of this program of research is to explore and document the experience of those living with  loss of access to appropriate food as a result of social, political, economic, and environmental changes. By putting sociologiocal data to the task of understanding patterns of consumption and the meanings that shape and underpin their reproduction over time, I aim to further explore the potential to challenge configurations that uphold environmentally and socially unsustainable arrangements. So far, I have worked on the intersection of these research areas in the UK as well as across the Caribbean.
