Kaufman Lab: for the Study and Design of Food Systems and Marketplaces

Professor Alfonso Morales initiated the Kaufman Lab for the Study and Design of Food Systems and Marketplaces in 2014 to honor the work of Emeritus Professor Jerry Kaufman whose work has left a lasting impression on the development of local and regional food systems around the world. The lab serves as a home to foster the work of many undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students in various projects. To learn more about the people who do research in the lab, or about the various collaborators  that we work with here in Madison and around the world, please inquire below.
