Research Interests

My research explores the intersection between cannabis agriculture and crop agriculture. Specifically, I examine the 'regenerative cannabis farming' movement and how this cohort of cannabis growers bring crop agriculture assemblages into the material-semiotic fold of their farms. Theoretically, my work draws from new feminist materialisms, critical agrarian studies, and political ecology.
