I was recently awarded a Fulbright scholar award to extend my research on the regulation of GM corn to Mexico! I’m thrilled with the news. I am looking forward to a year of engaged scholarship and new experiences in Mexico City. I will be on leave from CSU for the 2018-19 school year.
I am excited to announce that in August 2018, I will begin a new position as an Assistant Professor in International Development & Globalization at Colorado State University in the Sociology Department. I look forward to working with an accomplished group of hard-working academics and students in sunny Colorado. I will be teaching courses on Labor in the Global Food System, Environmental Governance, and Introduction to Sociology in the 2018-19 academic year. I feel very privileged.
I’m happy to announce that my article on the GM corn seed industry in Hawaii and Puerto Rico just came out in the latest issue of the Annals of the American Association of Geographers.

I am honored to receive the Early Career Research Award from the Rural Sociological Society. I am looking forward to conducting exploratory research on my new project in Mexico.
