The Good Food Institute

I am currently working with The Good Food Institute on a research project to evaluate the potential of upcycling agricultural byproducts into alternative proteins. GFI is a nonprofit think tank working to make the global food system better for the planet, people, and animals. Alongside scientists, businesses, and policymakers, GFI’s teams focus on making plant-based and cultivated meat delicious, affordable, and accessible. Powered by philanthropy, GFI is an international network of organizations advancing alternative proteins as an essential solution needed to meet the world’s climate, global health, food security, and biodiversity goals.


I serve as a Domain Expert in the field of Food Science and Technology for Carbon13, a venture builder for startups seeking to achieve Net Zero. Carbon13 is working to create ~200 ventures that have the capacity to reduce CO2e emissions by 400 million tonnes. 32 innovative carbon emissions-mitigating startups have been launched so far by Cohorts 1-3 of Carbon13’s Venture Builder for the Climate Emergency, across sectors such as agriculture, renewable energy, the built environment, food, and materials.


I am currently a member of the Mycelium Gastronomy Network, a global gastronomy innovation network of independent, hidden gem experts. We are here to give a voice and stake in the design of our food systems to the many people on the ground. Those who make gastronomy great. We translate the value our industry creates into transformational solutions for today’s pressing challenges. We focus on creating products & programs that are technically viable, context-appropriate & multidisciplinary from their inception.

Ronin Institute

I am a Research Scholar at the Ronin Institute of Independent Scholarship. The mission of the Ronin Institute is to provide an academic home for those interested in pursuing research in a way that is consistent with their life priorities. The organization is reinventing academia, but without the academy. The Ronin Institute is creating a new model for scholarly research that recognizes that the world outside of traditional academia is filled with smart, educated, passionate people who have a lot to offer to the world of scholarship. The aim is to transform the way that scholarly research is coordinated and funded.
