Author's short biography:

I'm currently a PhD candidate at the University of California, Irvine. My dissertation research examines the uneven rise of Fair Trade Organizations (FTOs) as market-oriented social justice organizations. Using original data on all current and former FTOs and time series and panel regression analyses, I examine (1) the rise of FTOs over time, (2) cross-national variation in the concentration of fair trade (FT) producer organizations across the global South, and (3) cross-national variation in the amount of FT goods consumed within developed countries.

In addition, I conduct cross-national comparative research in the areas of the natural environment, human health, and human rights. I am particularly interested in studying the effects of world cultural norms on a variety of outcomes within these areas and engaging both world society and political economy perspectives.
