I am a geographer and teach at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, received an anthropology degree at Yale University, and then discovered geography and got a PhD at the University of California at Berkeley.
Curiosity and research have taken me to countries across Africa and Europe. I lived for a year in Burkina Faso and find regular excuses to visit Paris and London. I have also done stints of fieldwork in Hong Kong, New Zealand, and a variety of places in the United States.
I have been fortunate to receive support for this research from the National Science Foundation, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies, the Mellon Foundation, and the American Council of Learned Societies.
I have written two books, Fresh and French Beans, as well as articles and opinion pieces for both the scholarly and popular press.
When not teaching or traveling, I live in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
