Visiting Professor, Department of Global Development
Dr. Hannah van Zanten is a visiting professor in the Department of Global Development at Cornell CALS. She is Associate Professor at the Wageningen University Farming Systems Ecology group and the project leader of the circular food systems project. It is her ambition to unravel how circular food systems can contribute to producing healthy foods for a growing population within the carrying capacity of the Earth. She recently was awarded the NWO Talent Scheme grant (VENI) in which she aims to assess the role of animals in a circular food system. Her research shows that farm animals reared under a circular paradigm can play a crucial role in feeding humanity, while reducing the environmental impact.
