I am a labor advocate and scholar of employment relations, inequities in society, and strategies to mitigate them. Experiences growing up in metropolitan Detroit and advocating for labor rights in multiple countries motivate my interest in inequities in the distribution of resources in the modern international economy and strategies for mitigating them. My international and comparative research focuses on labor standards, global commodity chains, agriculture and food systems, and divisions of labor across gender, race, and national states. In the classroom, my teaching aims to empower students with the theoretical and methodological tools to critically analyze social relations.
