Research Overview

I’m interested in the gender dynamics of agrarian change and agricultural interventions. My project, based on fieldwork with rural communities in northern Mozambique, is an attempt to build bridges between the often disconnected worlds of agricultural science and policy, and critical theory (and practice) from postcolonial and feminist studies.
