Steckley’s work is located broadly in the field of political ecology, with a focus on globalization, and social inequality. She is particularly interested in processes of social differentiation, displacement and ‘othering’ through food systems, with an emphasis on how class, race and gender intersect to influence food security, dietary choices and access to land.

Steckley is available to speak about climate change from a critical development geography perspective, and the uneven gendered experiences of food insecurity, and diet-related diseases. Steckley has worked in the field of international development as a policy analyst, advocacy and food justice co-ordinator, and disaster response co-ordinator.
