We have a whole new crop of staff and interns joining the Nourishing the Planet team this fall. Today, meet Jeffrey Lamoureux.
Jeffrey graduated from the George Washington University in 2010 with degrees in anthropology and economics. He has worked for several non-profits and think tanks around D.C. Jeffrey has lived in East Africa and he has for a time run a small cafe. His interests are in agricultural policy, international trade, and the anthropology of development.
An experienced barista, coffee has sparked his interest in agricultural commodities and the global value chains around them. In his spare time he plays music, cooks, and reads. He can speak Swahili and has a collection of old food magazines.
