GRI research assistant wins fellowship to study food waste and security
Global Resilience Institute research assistant Erin Bourque, CSSH ‘19, and Honors student Sydney Mokel, CSSH ‘19, have won a 2018 Summer Scholars Independent Research Fellowship (SSIRF). The SSIRF, writes the Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships, is Northeastern’s “most robust award for students taking on research and creative projects requiring the greatest degree of independence and sophistication.”
The duo’s proposal, entitled Good, Bad, and Ugly: Facilitating Acceptance of Produce Abnormalities for a More Efficient Food System, aims to explore campaigns to normalize “ugly” produce as one component of a larger solution to reduce food waste.
