Areas of Focus
〝A few years ago, I had the opportunity to take a step back and think about how I wanted to spend the next phase of my career. Over the previous 2-3 years, I had developed an interest in food – how are we going to produce enough, how can we do it sustainably, and how can we help people make food choices that are better for their long term health? I decided to focus on addressing these big questions.〞
