Sarah serves as Director of the Cornell Alliance for Science—a global communications initiative that promotes evidence-based decision-making in agriculture. She teaches courses on agricultural biotechnology at the graduate and undergraduate level and is part of an interdisciplinary team that developed a massive open online course (MOOC) on the science and politics of GMOs on Cornell University’s EdX platform. Sarah holds an adjunct appointment in the Section of Plant Breeding & Genetics in the School of Integrative Plant Sciences at Cornell and is a Senior Fellow at the Breakthrough Institute. Sarah was instrumental in launching the CALS initiative, AWARE (Advancing Women in Agriculture through Research and Education) which promotes women in agriculture. 

Sarah received her PhD in Plant Biology from Cornell University in 2009, for which she conducted an interdisciplinary study combining work in plant molecular biology with science communication. She came to Cornell after completing a BA in Biology at Reed College.  Sarah grew up in a small agricultural village in northwest Illinois and enjoys life in the Finger Lakes with her husband and young children.
