Beyond MFRE is a series of interviews focusing on alumni and their life after our master's degree. This week we put a spotlight on Nick Gemperle, an MFRE alumn currently employed as a Research Analyst with Ipsos, a world-renowned market research firm. Passionate about issues related to sustainable agriculture and climate change, Nick juggles his full-time job with a seat on the board of an NGO.
From Carbon Policy, to Vertical Farming, to Artificial Intelligence, the MFRE Speaker Series is designed to show a glimpse into the complexities of ‘real world’ food and resource economics issues, trends and perspectives. It covers topics in business, government, academics, development, environment, and data analysis.
