Bio/Research

I joined the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Guelph in 1994. I have an undergraduate degree in Social Anthropology/Latin American Studies, a Masters in Interdisciplinary Studies and a PhD in Sociology. The interdisciplinary nature of my studies, which generally focused on rural and agricultural development in Latin America, led to my receiving a Rockefeller Social Science Fellowship in Agriculture. I elected to undertake this at the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), Cali, Colombia. During my fellowship at CIAT, I lived in Honduras where I initiated a pilot project in farmer participatory research with hillside farmers. Today in Honduras there are 105 farmer research teams, involving over 1,100 farmers, which have developed from this pilot project. Since 2000, USC-Canada, one of the country’s oldest international NGOs, has supported the majority of these farmer research teams with the backing of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).
