Susanna is a PhD student at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability and the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at the University of British Columbia. Her research focuses on understanding the processes and dynamics that mediate food system sustainability, and the multi-functionality of farming systems. Her PhD work investigates how organic agriculture is contributing to food system sustainability by assessing the adoption of practices and approaches that enhance agro-ecosystem health and social welfare on organic farms in Canada. She is working with collaborating agencies to ground her research in the institutional context of the organic sector, and to ensure results are relevant to policy and regulatory discussions in Canada and globally. Susanna is also a member of the Food Secure Canada Board of Directors, an Advisor for the Meal Exchange Good Food Challenge, and an Articling Agrologist with the BC Institute of Agrologists.
