My research explores ethnic, racial and class inequalities and their relationships to state politics, governance and the control of natural resources. I worked for many years on indigenous rights and social movements in Ecuador, which is the subject of my first book, One State, Many Nations: Indigenous Rights Struggles in Ecuador. I also conducted a multi-year project on race in Ecuadorian public discourse and another on conservation debates in Canada. Most recently, I have been studying artisanal fishers in Peru and their struggles to maintain access to productive marine resources and am writing a book manuscript on the subject.
