Research & Publications

My research focuses on the social study of agriculture and food (agrifood studies), with topics ranging from food security-sovereignty, sustainable agriculture, alternative food movements, global value chains, digitalization of agriculture, and the nexus between food, agriculture, environment and society. I use mainly post-structuralist political economy approach (assemblage thinking, ANT, governmentality, and theory of practice).
