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. 
The geographical focus of my PhD thesis was Bolivia, where I researched the chicken meat sector as well as high-status food practices.
My current postdoctoral research focuses on food and social inequalities in the Swedish context.


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.
