We are devastated to share the news that our good friend and colleague Jason Beddow has passed away. Jason worked to bridge the gap between climate change, scientific and technological advances and agricultural policy to uncover cost-effective solutions to global food challenge. Read more for a profile of his work in the College’s Solutions magazine. Jason was kind and went the extra mile for all who engaged with him. We will miss him deeply.
