I am interested in how people relate to food and how those relations affect the way they understand and act on their worlds, bodies, practices, and wellbeing. My previous research has focused on food practices, desire, eating and hunger experiences, and their connection to urbanization, class, and gender relations in different contexts (internal migration in the Mexico-US border, and private/public universities in Mexico City). For my Ph.D., I’m working on how desire for “sustainable food” reconfigures socioecological, technoscientific, and ethical-political relations in corporate food supply chains. My motivation is to understand the potential of food in socioecological transformations.
