Sarah's research uses critical and participatory methodologies to explore social contexts around science and environmental education. Sarah’s context areas for research and teaching are food and climate change. More specifically, Sarah is interested in the many ways food intersects with schools and how these, in turn, impact student health, well-being, and the environment. Sarah also researches and teaches about climate justice and how to teach about climate change in schools in ways that inspire hope and action. Sarah is deeply concerned with social and environmental inequities, and sees research as a form of activism to address them. She also prioritizes her local place and participatory relationships through her research. Her current projects are based in her community and result from participatory collaborations.
