Research Interests

I work in the area of sociology of agriculture and food systems. My research focuses primarily on agricultural knowledge, science, and technology. I am interested in the sources of agricultural knowledge; the adoption and diffusion of agricultural innovations; and the ways in which agricultural beliefs, choices, and practices affect community well-being, sustainability, rural quality of life, food security, and the environment. I use a diversity of investigative methods, such as mail and web surveys, interviews, focus groups, and collection of secondary data. Most of my work is conducted as part of multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, and integrated (research, education, and outreach) teams.

My current research projects focus on the following:

  • Barriers and bridges to the adoption of biodegradable plastic mulches
  • Development of values-based quinoa supply chains in the U.S., Australia, and Europe
  • Farmer decision-making and transitions to alternative pest management practices
