Evan Fraser did a PhD and post-doc at the University of British Columbia and worked at the University of Leeds in the UK between 2003 and 2010. He is a Professor of Geography and holds the Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security at the University of Guelph. He is also a fellow of Trudeau Foundation, the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and an elected member of the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars. His work is on challenges to food security over the next two generations, during which time population growth and climate change threaten to make food harder to produce and more expensive to buy. He has worked extensively with climate modelers, economists, ecologists, anthropologists, and journalists to explore possible solutions to this global challenge. In addition to approximately 80 academic articles and book chapters, he has written two popular books on food and sustainable agriculture and has had articles published by CNN.com, theguardian.com, ForeignAffairs.com, The Ottawa Citizen and the Walrus. His web video series on “feeding nine billion” has been watched over 200,000 times and used in classrooms around the world.
