About Me

My name is Roni and I’m originally from the U.S. but I’ve lived in many different places and traveled a lot. I’ve always been interested in the world and the different cultures. I have an Undergraduate degree in International Relations and Conflict Resolution from the IDC. I have a masters degree in Contemporary Chinese Studies from the University of Nottingham and I have another masters degree in the Anthropology of Food from SOAS London. I based both of my theses on food. My first thesis researched tainted baby food in China leading the Chinese government to expand their food industry. I did my second masters thesis on Halal (qingzhen) food in China. In general I like finding the relationship between food and politics and reading about different countries. Please keep in mind that I try to remain as neutral as I can so I don’t insult anybody.  I research topics that fascinate me and I personally do the research with academic articles unless the only research I can find is just from websites.
