I graduated from American International College in 2010 with a Bachelor's degree in sociology and a minor in Spanish. I received my Masters degree in sociology from Florida Atlantic University in 2012. I began my doctoral studies at the University of Tennessee in the fall of 2012. My research interests include political economy, environmental sociology, Latin America, race and gender inequalities, sociology of food and agriculture, and globalization.  Much of my current research focuses on land tenure, commercial agriculture, cooperative agriculture, and indigenous rights in Guatemala.
