I have an existing portfolio of research related to food systems and would hope this sociological insight might contribute to and complement the work of other FIC affiliates. I've actually been part of several multidisciplinary efforts related to food systems with existing FIC affiliates, but anticipate further efforts that hopefully will bear fruit. Participation in FIC may help build a strong team and proposal.
