Julia Skinner, PhD, is founder and director of Root, a food history and fermentation organization in Atlanta, GA. She also works as a professional fermenter for restaurants and for private clients. She has extensive experience as a food history researcher, including her forthcoming book Afternoon Tea: A History (Rowman & Littlefield, edited by Ken Albala, 2019) and as a source for numerous popular press articles.

She has a doctorate in Library and Information Studies from Florida State University, and her academic pursuits intersect with a range of disciplines across the social sciences and humanities, giving her a well-rounded and unique perspective that she brings to her writing.

Dr. Skinner has published over a dozen single author scholarly articles, as well as reviews, co-authored academic works, and popular press pieces. Her work is unique among fermenters and food historians in that she regularly studies both subjects, as well as the intersections between them.

When she isn’t writing or in the kitchen, she enjoys spending time hiking and foraging, as well as traveling and spending time within the various creative communities she calls home.
