Research Interests

My experiential doctoral research (funded by a SSHRC Vanier Scholarship) engages with regenerative farming models to enhance local food resilience and foster more socially inclusive spaces. As a form of resistance to industrialized agro-food systems, this work strengthens broad-based alliances through a community-based participatory framework. Combining hands-on growing with sharing circles, cultural activities, and farm exchanges, I collaborate alongside citizen researchers to build capacity in regenerative agriculture as a tool for wider social transformation. At the University of Calgary, I serve as a Co-Convener of the Calgary Institute for the Humanities (CIH) Food Studies Interdisciplinary Research Group, and hold a Frances Spratt Graduate Student Resident Fellowship. I am also an active member of the Graduate Leaders Circle, Taylor Institute Teaching Academy, and Graduate Anthropology and Archaeology Student Association.
