Hoey’s research and teaching interests focus on food systems; in particular, ways in which policy planning, implementation, and evaluation strategies facilitate or limit the development of equitable, healthy, and sustainable food systems.

Also recently hired is Ph.D. candidate George Homsey, who will start this fall as an assistant professor, tenure-track, in the Department of Public Administration at Binghamton University. Homsey will lead the newly formed sustainable communities master’s degree, and initiate a series of case studies examining the policy-making processes and best practices of the most sustainable places.
