Nathan McClintock is Assistant Professor of Urban Studies & Planning at Portland State University. A geographer focusing on urban agriculture (UA) and food systems and urban political ecology, he integrates qualitative and quantitative methods (from social theory to soil sampling and spatial analysis) to understand food systems, cities, and the environment. He is currently conducting research on UA in Portland (with some comparative work in Canada and the Pacific NW), and is particularly interested in the relationship between UA, sustainability policy, social movements, race and class. He draws on more than fifteen years of sustainable agri-food systems work in North America and the Global South wearing a number of different hats along the way: researcher, trainer, journalist, Peace Corps volunteer, food policy council member, and farmer. He received his PhD from UC Berkeley (Geography, 2011) where his dissertation focused on the rise of the UA in Oakland and opportunities for its expansion. He completed a MS at NCSU (Crop Science/Agroecology, 2004) where he conducted research on compost use and nutrient cycling at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems. This program has been sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"It's the era of big data now, and we can collect it with all this new technology." [17:10]

They talk about what brought them to the academic side of food and what they expect to get out of the program. Learn what makes New York a unique place to study food and how a holistic understanding of our food system trumps all other approaches. Whether you're about to graduate or considering applying, everybody can learn something from this episode. This program was sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

"I went in wanting to study food and culture..a lot people go in and change their interests. It can be difficult. There's a lot of really interesting stuff out there."

"Saying "buy local" is not a feasible goal for the long term."

"New York is a great place to study the food systems issue. There are all these people on an island that manage to eat every day. It's a great laboratory to study [food system] models."

--Amy Rosenthal on Taste Matters

"My goal would be uniting culture and sustainability."

--Ashley Kosiak on Taste Matters
