Mona Seymour is an Associate Professor of Urban and Environmental Studies at Loyola Marymount University.

Her research interests broadly concern the relationships between veganism/animal liberation and agrifood movements. She is currently working on a project on veganic farming in the United States in collaboration with Alisha Utter, Ph.D. candidate in Plant and Soil Science at the University of Vermont. The project focuses on the values, experiences, and farming practices of US veganic growers. She welcomes contact from graduate students seeking an external advisor on this topic, and from other researchers interested in collaboration.

Her past research has explored urban sustainability planning and green infrastructure, with particular attention to alleyway revitalization and greenspace planning.
