About Me

I’m a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at the University of Toronto. I have studied food both in my masters degree in sociology and in a European masters in the history and culture of food in France, Italy and Spain. I have also worked in food communications and taste education for Slow Food (Italy, France) and Voir Communications (Ottawa-Gatineau), among others. My research focuses on the cultural, identity and consumption elements of food practices from a comparative perspective (North America and Europe). My dissertation looks at the ways in which terroir functions in the wine sector in France and Canada, and examines questions of value and cultural diffusion.
