My first area of research focuses on contentious politics. I examine how GMOs became objects of contention. My first book, The Politics of Genetically Modified Organisms in the United States and Europe, was published by Palgrave McMillan 2016. In it, I am interested in the reasons why genetically modified foods remain such a contentious topic capable of mobilizing resistance on both sides of the Atlantic. I have an additional article under review.
