L4E PHD FELLOW - UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT
Katie is pursuing a PhD in Plant and Soil Science, with a focus on Agroecology. Her dissertation research will focus on multiple realms of agroecological transformation, including pedagogical innovations within agroecology education, soil restoration, and communal land ownership models. A commitment to rigorously exploring the transformational potential of agroecology and participatory action research to address ecological degradation and social injustice within agri-food systems undergirds Katie’s research.
