My primary work is in the political ecology of food and agriculture in Postsocialist Europe with particular interest in policy narratives, science and technology studies, food and intellectual property law, historical ecology, and sensuous ethnography.

Zooarchaeology Lab

The Zooarchaeology Laboratory specializes in the analysis of vertebrate remains from archaeological sites, but also works with invertebrate, paleontological, and ecological samples. The comparative collection numbers over 5,000 vertebrate and invertebrate specimens with an emphasis on animals from the southeastern United States, adjacent waters, and the Caribbean.
