Primary Food Innovation Center Area: Food Strategy and Policy, Obesity, Food Security
Areas of Expertise: food and ethnicty, migration and food, food and bugs, food security and economics (global and local issues)

My work focuses on several themes -- food security and economics for immigrants settling in the US (particularly immigrants from rural Mexico), the production, use and consumption of grasshoppers by Oaxacans and the presence and use of grasshoppers by immigrants to the US.  Patterns of food use and access to food by people living in poverty and the relationship of poverty and food deserts to issues like obesity.  I would very much like to tie the later to work with the mid-Ohio food bank.
