Angelica is an interdisciplinary educator, writer, and activist-researcher. She is interested in geographies of capitalism and in the interdependencies of landscape, plants, people, pathogens, and capital. Her research is specifically focused on landscape histories, mobile plants and pathogens, and olive grove ecologies in southern Europe and the Mediterranean, where she is investigating the causes, consequences, and afterlives of environmental destruction.
Prior to beginning graduate study at NSSR, she worked as an international and outdoor educator, facilitating programming in West Africa and Southeast Asia. She loves nerding out on trees and forests, and (in pre-pandemic times, once loved) bringing people together around food.
