Research Interests

I'm excited about using food as an intersection point between environmental history, history of public health, and the history of science. I'm currently working on a project looking at how expanding transportation networks and technological improvements led to a standardized American diet, shifting Americans away from a diet that was rooted in seasonality and regional availability. I'll be using canned foods--both commercial and home-canned--as the lens onto this broader topic.
