Erika completed her master’s at IRES under the co-supervision of Dr. Navin Ramankutty and Dr. Amanda Giang. During her time at IRES, Erika explored multiple topics around food systems, from gender in agriculture to crop species diversity. The former inspired her to co-found an organization (DAMUSA) promoting the visualization of gender data in food systems. The latter, crop species diversity with a focus on Mexico’s agriculture, became the topic of her master’s thesis. Erika is currently a Policy Analyst at the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), working on Voluntary Sustainability Standards in Agriculture.
