I am a doctoral student in cultural anthropology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. My research is broadly concerned with political ecology, alternative economic networks, and gender in the Commonwealth of Dominica, Eastern Caribbean. Specifically, I am interested in the interplay between contemporary manifestations of agri-food governance and endogenous systems of food production and exchange as well as how such interactions and practices influence and are influenced by gender, family relations, and other community networks of care, support, and obligation.
