What did Clarissa have to offer?
Working in agriculture research, we often discuss how we are contributing to the broader cause of "feeding the world". We're developing stronger crops that will be able to withstand droughts and the effects of climate change to help bring greater food security to regions that need it. The Baltimore Hunger Project has the same goal that I am passionate about - increasing food security for those that need it. It goes at this from a completely different angle, a more people-focused angle. I'm very excited to find a cause that incorporates both research and food security! I have been working in or assisting with research for the past 8 years. I have worked on mainly science-focused projects, such as how fertilizer impacts plant species in wetlands. I have also worked on with people-related projects, such as using the Writing Center's data to quantify its impact. Over the years I've done primary data entry, data digitization, and data analysis. I also am very comfortable working with technology and online platforms.
