I earned a PhD in the History of Science and Technology from the University of Toronto in 2016. I’m interested in how people in groups come to know what they know about who should eat what, and why. I’m particularly interested in the science behind the pleasures and dangers of eating. I’ve taught courses on the history of bodies that eat at the University of California, Los Angeles, the University of Toronto, and The New School in New York City. Delicious is the title of my book on the history of umami, and it is scheduled for release in fall 2021 with the University of California Press.
If you’d like to know more, or have a group who’d like to listen to me tell stories about foods we love to hate and hate to love, send me an email or tweet at me. Nope, I’m not on Instagram!
