My field research is based in the coffee fields of Cajamarca, Peru and around Lake Titicaca in Puno, Peru. In Cajamarca, I study female governance and development in the Cafe Femenino Fair Trade Cooperative while in Puno, I study the role of democratization in Lake Titicaca's water pollution governance.
