About The Author

After graduating summa cum laude with a B.S. in Biology and Economics from Georgia College and State University in my undergraduate, I moved on to complete my M.S. in Animal Science at Michigan State University. Currently, I am working on my Ph.D in Environmental Science, Policy and Management at the University of California at Berkeley. For the past several years, my research focus and passion has surrounded sustainable animal agriculture. My ultimate goal is to promote adoption of sustainable agricultural practices through science-based policy formation, with a particular focus on the environmental effects and animal welfare of farm animals in the United States.

The United States is the leading beef producer in the world and among the highest beef consumers, where each person consumes an estimated 25.6 kg/capita annually- double the OECD average (1).
