I am a graduate student deeply interested in issues related to the global food system, food security, justice, and sustainable agricultural practices. I am fascinated with the idea of addressing major social issues from multiple angles and combining the best from all fields in policy solutions. My experience as an undergraduate studying local politics gives me a unique perspective on global issues. I am a graduate research assistant at the Kirwan Institute where I participate in interdisciplinary research on a daily basis. Thus, I believe that the interdisciplinary Food Innovation Center is a simply a place that I belong.
