Bio: I am currently a Princeton in Africa Fellow working in corporate responsibility & sustainability in the Ghanaian cocoa industry for Olam International. My work in Ghana has included meeting with cocoa farmers in preparation of certification audits, developing social investment programs, and organizing community outreach. I will begin a dual degree program in food policy and development economics at Tufts University's Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy and Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy in September 2014. I have previous work experience in agricultural and economic development, monitoring & evaluation, and anti-corruption research. In addition, I wrote an honors thesis analyzing the effects of trade liberalization and domestic agricultural production on global food security.
