Dr. Morin, currently the undergraduate program director for the agriculture and food systems program, explores how the world feeds itself, and explores how we will produce enough food in the face of climate change and population growth, while simultaneously reducing agriculture and food’s carbon footprint. Through her teaching, she seeks to inspire students to develop and to share solutions to the challenges facing agriculture and food systems.
