I have been actively engaged in the supervision of independent research theses at both undergraduate and graduate levels.  I have dedicated my research and teaching to building personal relationships with others. I empathize deeply with how injustice affects people and communities‚ÄĒand I believe individual advocacy is insufficient. My program of research creates environments where participants receive training and are actively involved in community-engaged initiatives related to capacity development and agri-food innovation.
