Emily Cassidy has a Bachelors of Science in environmental science and is currently a Graduate research assistant with the Global Landscapes Initiative. On a larger scale Emily is interested in how global diet preferences impact land use and environmental change. Her research has focused on global crop uses and how feed grains and grasses are converted into meat and dairy. She is currently in the process of completing her Master’s degree in Natural Resources Science and Management in the College of Food Agriculture and Natural Resources Science. Emily’s interdisciplinary thesis draws from Nutrition, Global Agriculture, and Environmental Sciences.
