Anne's research interests include how changes in food environments impact food choices, using regional food supply chains to serve low income areas, to bringing sustainable food production to underserved populations, the impact of food deserts on communities, and conducting community food assessments with Baltimore-based non profits and community organizations. She helped create the Maryland Food System mapping resource, a GIS database that maps diverse layers of the food system.
