Jill Clark, Ph.D.
John Glenn College of Public Affairs
My research, teaching and extension experience can contribute to meaningful work in community-based food and agricultural policy, planning and economic development, food security, and the creation of sustainable food and agriculture markets. My background in rural and economic geography, natural resource policy and city planning allows me to inform multi-faceted and complex food system questions. I also have experience working in nonprofit and government settings with a diverse set of stakeholders, professionals and other academicians on civic outreach contributing to current food policy debates. Most importantly, this training and my experiences have led me to seek out interdisciplinary research opportunities.
