I am interested in studying food economic systems with regards to the incorporation of food into market-based systems. Specifically, I would like to explore how food cultures change with the introduction of capitalism as a result of colonization.
Ph.D. /M.A. Research:
My current research is on the faunal remains and foodways from the Spanish Colonial site, Sevilla la Nueva, on the north coast of Jamaica.
