Research and Teaching Interests:

My work is informed by broad interests in Agrarian and Environmental Change, Global Food Economy, International Development, Poverty, Aid and Governance, Social Movements, and Power, Domination and Resistance. My approach to studying these diverse themes is to make sense of the complex linkages of these themes by examining the interactions and power relations of various actors—the state, market, international organizations, nongovernmental organizations, multinational corporations, peasants, and indigenous peoples—who are shaped by and shape the process of capitalist development and state formation. I am committed to working with students on these and other topics of their interests.
