Princeton Studies Food Reunions Panel

Friday, June 1, 2018 -
11:00am to 12:00pm

Celebrate the fourth anniversary of Princeton Studies Food at their one-hour panel and Q&A that looks at food systems study and projects underway and planned for the future.


Professor Dan Rubenstein, who studies mutualism and whose new course, Agriculture, Human Diets and the Environment, includes the life cycle analysis of a 2050 menu and is partnering with Campus Dining Services to serve samples of relevant dishes to registered students.

Serena Stein, PhD student in food anthropology, studies the intersection of international development, agriculture, public health, and environment. She earned her MPhil from Oxford University, where she founded the Oxford Global Food Forum.

Tim Treuer, EEB grad student, who is following up on an almost-forgotten experiment of Daniel Janzen '76 and Winnie Hallwachs '76 that now showcases the power of discarded orange peels to regenerate a forest and to sequester carbon.

Rozalie Czesana '18, the first graduate and first student member of Princeton Studies Food, who, in addition to work on wasted food and other Greening Dining projects, and directing students to best options for meals in dining halls, helped to create and shepherd the Science, Society & Dinner course with Karla Cook, co-founder of PSF, and Professor Kelly Caylor, now at UC-Santa Barbara.
