Allison is a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow in the department of Geography and Environment at Western University, working with Dr. Tony Weis researching the socio-ecological role of plant-meat. This interest builds from her SSHRC-funded dissertation (supervised by Dr. Amy Fitzgerald) which analyzed perceptions of dietary-based environmental harm and its impact on willingness to consume plant-meat.
Allison focuses her studies in the worlds of Food Crime, Green Criminology, Consumerism, Vegan Criminology, Environmental Sociology, and Social Harm. She is also actively researching: Food as both environmental harm and as solutions to environmental harm; Intersection of violence against humans and animals; Consumer-based (food) activism; Governance of food choice; Corporatization of veganism and plant-meat.
