My research focuses on creating a national food policy for Canada, and the set of coherent and comprehensive programs required to support such a policy. The courses I teach identity the problems of the food and agriculture system, its vulnerabilities, where change is possible in the short, medium and long term, and the strategies that could bring about effective change. The graduate students I work with explore from inter-disciplinary perspectives viable solutions to pressing environmental and social problems.
