I do research on the interrelationships between sustainability and social inequalities. My research focuses on how these interrelationships are revealed in everyday life, particularly in food production, distribution, and consumption.
My geographical focus is Bolivia, where I currently research the chicken meat sector, from the politics behind the sharp increase in chicken production to cultural changes surrounding the shift towards chicken as an affordable protein source.


I have worked with communities affected by mining in the highlands of Bolivia, and I am currently collaborating with small chicken farmers in the region of Cochabamba.
