Research Interests:
As the descendant of a long line of bagel bakers, my research interests naturally revolve around food policy. I am interested in governmental nutrition programs as well as citizen-driven initiatives. I remain particularly intrigued by initiatives that connect the goals of sustainable agriculture with those of public health, such as SNAP Match programs at farmers’ markets and produce prescription programs. I plan to study the potential roles of local public policy, civic participation, and interorganizational collaboration in supporting the success of such programs. I aim to approach my work through the lens of social justice with the ultimate goal of empowering communities and increasing equity. I am especially interested in using mixed methods and engaging in community-based participatory research.
