The recipient of a national Watson Fellowship, Lauren will spend next year pursuing her project “The Future of Food: Modern Technology and Traditional Agriculture.” Her research will take her to farms in Tanzania, India, Bolivia and Iceland where she’ll explore the intricacies of food systems and how technology is impacting local communities. On campus, Lauren co-founded and co-leads Slow Food Hamilton, an organization that raises awareness about “good, clean and fair” food. She also represented the U.S. as a delegate to the 2012 International Slow Food Congress in Italy.
