I completed my Ph.D. requirements in January 2021. Using the French notion of terroir as a conceptual framework, my ongoing research investigates the social-ecological system of place-based wine production in Ohio, USA, and Alsace, France, to examine how winegrowers understand, adapt, and articulate changes in their vitivinicultural (i.e., winegrowing) landscapes. I am especially interested in how foods and drinks of geographic origin help individuals articulate sociocultural and political senses of self and belonging in times of change (climatic or otherwise). The final phase of my research in France was supported by a Humanities and Social Sciences "Make Our Planet Great Again" Chateaubriand Fellowship, which is sponsored by the Cultural Services of the Embassy of France. My previous work analyzed the symbolism and political economy of pictorial representations of food-based dietary guidelines (FBDGs).

In addition to serving as the Lecture Series Team Leader for Ohio State APOP and the Editor-in-Chief of the Culture & Agriculture Sensorium.
